MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the country’s Foreign Ministry to sign an agreement on state border between Russia and the Caucasus Republic of South Ossetia. The president has posted the specific decree at the official web-portal of legal information on Thursday.
“I instruct the Russian Foreign Ministry to hold talks with South Ossetia and sign a specific treaty on behalf of Russia upon reaching an agreement,” the document runs.
The treaty determines the state borderline between Russia and South Ossetia, which passes on the mountain tops of the Main Caucasus Ridge. The state borderline is put on a topographic map, which makes integral part of the treaty.
The conclusion of this treaty “will promote international legal establishment of the state border of the Russian Federation and will permit to take measures to reinforce the border,” the Russian government press service reported.
