MOSCOW, December 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russia believes that political processes in South Ossetia are the internal matter of the republic, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
Commenting on the situation in South Ossetia on Thursday, Lukashevich said, “Russia complies with its obligations for ensuring external security in South Ossetia and will not interfere into internal affairs of the country.”
“However, it is natural that we continue to watch the tense situation in the republic that arouses our concern.” “I sincerely hope that South Ossetia will succeed in preserving a constitutional order, calm, unity of the society and creating necessary conditions for the successful ongoing development of the country,” the diplomat said.
“We do not intend to interfere into internal affairs of the republic. Political processes in South Ossetia are internal affairs of the country,” Lukashevich stressed.
