Rumblings in South Ossetia
The authorities of the self-proclaimed republic of South Ossetia on Thursday protested against the continued operation of a Georgian reservist training camp in the community of Dzevera in the Gori district, which is located within the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict zone.
President of the unrecognized Republic of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh hailed the talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and South Ossetian leader Eduard Kokoity held in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi on April 5, Apsnypress reports.
The issues of peaceful resolution of Abkhaz and South Ossetian conflicts, as well as particular economic issues were discussed during the “unscheduled talks” with the Russian President, according to Apsnypress.
The leaders of breakaway republics of Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transdniestria are scheduled to meet on April 22, Abkhaz President Sergei Bagapsh told Interfax on Thursday.
“Our meeting will presumably take place on April 22, most likely in Sukhumi,” he said.
Bagapsh refused to comment on the fact that the leaders of the GUUAM regional organization (Georgia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Moldova) are planning to conduct a parallel meeting in Chisinau on the same day.
