MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) - South Ossetia hopes that the world community, primarily Georgia, will recognize its independence, South Ossetian Ambassador to Russia Dmitry Medoyev said.
Speaking at the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy on Monday, Medoyev said South Ossetia “would like to have equal interstate and good-neighborly relations with Georgia”.
“It is obvious that this will be possible after the Georgian government will assume responsibility for the aggression against South Ossetia and the genocide policy. This question will be raised by South Ossetia at the Geneva discussions on security in Transcaucasia,” the ambassador said.
“The South Ossetian government is resolute to commit to the principles of settling crises by peaceful and civilized means based on the norms of international law,” Medoyev said.
