TSKHINVAL, December 28, 18:34 /ITAR-TASS/. President Leonid Tibilov said his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi on May 21 had become one of the key events in the expiring year.
During the meeting, the presidents of both countries took important decisions on the economic development of South Ossetia and the implementation of the investment programme for contributing to the economic development in 2013 in order to provide assistance to the republic, Tibilov said.
“Today we can say in compliance with the financial agreements reached in Sochi a clear system, which met Russia’s high standards, was built,” the South Ossetian president said.
This year “relations with Russia reached a qualitatively new level”, he said.
Among other important events Tibilov named the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Georgia’s army of the republic on August 8, 2008 and the 5th anniversary of Russia’s recognition of the independence of South Ossetia.
