TSKHINVAL, May 29. /TASS/. South Ossetia's independence may be recognized by a whole range of countries, not only in Latin America but also in Africa, the republic’s president Leonid Tibilov said in an exclusive interview with TASS.
"There is a whole range of countries of Africa and Latin America to which we have appealed and they answer to us that certain work is underway," the president said.
Tibilov reminded that the first article of the Treaty on Allied Relations and Integration with Russia says that the work on international positions of South Ossetia will continue.
"Russia is helping us and encouraging us to regain feet and we will stand up and will become a proximate pillar for Russia," he stressed.
The president also said South Ossetia maintains respective relations with the countries that have recognized it, namely with Venezuela, Nicaragua and Nauru. "Through them, we will try to reach other states so that South Ossetia would be in sight," he said.
In early 2015, South Ossetia received the representatives of the Eastern African country of Eritrea. "We had a serious discussion, and we also plan to come there," Tibilov said.
