TSKHINVAL, April 27 /TASS/. The parliament of South Ossetia ratified the Treaty on the State Border with Russia in the second reading on Wednesday.
The treaty, which was signed in Moscow on February 18, 2015, is a core document defining the line of the Russian-South Ossetian state border, Alexander Pliyev, the vice-chairman of the parliamentary Committee for foreign policy and inter-parliamentary ties, said as he submitted the bill to the deputies.
The document contains a detailed description of the state borderline between the Republic of South Ossetia and Russia that runs along the Caucasus Mountain range from West to East. A map depicting the state border, which was established on the basis of a line, which used to exist in the former USSR, is attached to the bill as a supplement, Murat Dzhioyev, the South Ossetian president’s special envoy for the postwar settlement, told TASS in previous interviews.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill on the state border between the two countries into law on April 26.
The total length of the South Ossetian state border is about 440 km. The Russian-Ossetian section of the common border is 74 kilometers long. The remaining part is the border with Georgia.
