Georgian Foreign Ministry urges international community’s help to prevent provocations in conflict zone
Georgia, Tbilisi, Sept. 18 / Trend N. Kirtzkhalia /
The Georgian Foreign Ministry urged the international community to take appropriate measures to prevent Russia's acts of provocation in its conflict zone.
"Unfortunately, despite the international community's appeals, the Russian Federation continues violating the principles of international law and obligations envisaged by the ceasefire agreement of August 12, 2008," the Georgian Foreign Ministry said today.
According to the statement, Russian servicemen resumed the process of erecting barbed wire fences along the border in the Tskhinvali region, particularly in the village of Ditsi in the Gori region on September 17, 2013.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry expresses deep concern and condemns the illegal actions of the Russian military.
Large scale military action was launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
