MOSCOW, August 10 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is perplexed with the Georgian Foreign Ministry’s statement which called illegal his trip to South Ossetia on August 8.
“What does the Georgian Foreign Ministry have to do with that? The Russian Prime Minister visited a sovereign state – the Republic of South Ossetia – to meet with the national administration and to discuss joint projects,” he posted on the Facebook on Friday.
“Independent South Ossetia is a reality of modern international relations. This country appeared on the map four years ago, much because of the criminal policy of the Georgian authorities. They cannot teach us what to do now,” he said.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry made a statement on Friday to call “illegal the visit of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to the Tskhinvali region.” The ministry said that the Russian premier “in violation of Georgian laws arrived in the territory of sovereign Georgia and visited the Tskhinvali region occupied by Russia.”
