Russian does not support Tbilisi?s initiative to involve "provisional government" of South Ossetia in settlement process
Russian Ambassador to Georgia Vyacheslav Kovalenko finds ungrounded an initiative of the Georgian side to engage head of the South Ossetian "provisional government" Dmitry Sanakoyev into the process of settling the Georgian-Ossetian crisis.
"The only way to resolve South Ossetia?s problems is a negotiation process between two internationally recognized parties - Georgia and South Ossetia. There is no other way here. No new parties, no new actors must be engaged in the process," Vyacheslav Kovalenko is quoted as saying by a REGNUM correspondent.
The South Ossetian provisional government was established under a law that was passed by the Georgian parliament on April 13, 2007, and came into force on April 16. Dmitry Sanakoyev was appointed head of the provisional government by a Georgian presidential decree of May 10.
