MOSCOW, August 23 (Itar-Tass) - No relations can be maintained between South Ossetia and Georgia if Georgia does not recognise the genocide of the South Ossetian people, President Leonid Tibilov said.
Speaking at a news conference at the Itar-Tass news agency on Friday, the South Ossetian president said: “Georgia should recognise the genocide. Without its recognition no relations can be between the two states.”
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia on August 26, 2008 after Russia’s operation to coerce Georgia to peace.
“Almost all genetic resources were exterminated,” Tibilov said, adding that in the last 20 years Georgia had unleashed war against South Ossetia three times.
