MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - Georgia continues an irresponsible policy of fanning tensions in the areas adjoining its border with the Republic of South Ossetia, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Friday in the course of a telephone conversation with the European Union’s Special Envoy to South Caucasus, Philippe Lefort.
“The Russian side called the Special Representative’s attention to mass media reports that a so-called mass march of protest of Georgian reporters from Tbilisi to the village of Dvani on the border with South Ossetia has been scheduled for September 28,” a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass.
“Russia shares the assessments and concerns that the South Ossetian Foreign Ministry and several South Ossetian leaders gave earlier,” the ministry said.
Karasin pointed out in this connection the continued attempts on the part of Georgia to fan tensions in the areas adjoining the Georgian-South Ossetian border.
“It is important to prevent the harmful consequences for security and stability in the region. Organisers of the actions will assume responsibility for them,” the ministry said.
