TSKHINVAL, December 10 /TASS/. The Republic of South Ossetia and Russia may sign a new treaty on allied relations and partnership early in 2015, South Ossetian President Leonid Tibilov told TASS on Wednesday.
“The work on the treaty has got under way. Consultations with the presidential administration are being held; we expect the Russian side to reply to our proposals soon. We can say that preliminarily the treaty may be signed in late January-early February next year,” the South Ossetian president said.
According to Tibilov, the treaty will help South Ossetia to strengthen its security and get new opportunities for socio-economic development.
“Despite a change in leadership, nothing has changed in Georgia since the military aggression (against South Ossetia) in August 2008. South Ossetia and Abkhazia remain targets for Georgia’s military aggression. We deem it necessary to sign the new treaty in order to secure security for the future generations,” Tibilov went on to say.
He added that a qualitatively new level of integration between South Ossetia and Russia would be the treaty’s key aspect.
“The range of integration can be pretty wide: from becoming part of Russia to associated partnership. We are planning to attract the public, parties and parliament to debates on this and other aspects of the future treaty,” the South Ossetian president stressed.
Russia and South Ossetia signed the existing Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance in September 2008.
