Georgia is using the conflict with the self-proclaimed republic of South Ossetia to get financial aid from the United States
Georgia is using the conflict with the self-proclaimed republic of South Ossetia to get financial aid from the United States, the South Ossetian president's envoy to Moscow said Monday. "One of Georgia's purposes is to get some financial aid from the U.S. using the current situation," Dmitry Medoyev said. The new plan of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict resolution that Georgia started promoting at the OSCE session in Vienna in late October was drafted by some western countries, including the U.S. and "gives a detailed description of the steps that Georgian Prime Minister [Zurab] Nogaideli and the Foreign Ministry should take and what Georgia should urge Russia or South Ossetia to do," he said. He also said Georgia's proposals to involve U.S. peacekeepers in the conflict resolution were "absurd." "South Ossetia supports the three-stage resolution plan that includes the restoration of mutual trust between the [conflicting] sides, economic revival of the conflict zone and discussion of political issues," Medoyev said. The Georgian-South Ossetian conflict began in the early 1990s when Georgia abolished South Ossetia's autonomous status. In 1992, former Russian and Georgian presidents Boris Yeltsin and Eduard Shevardnadze signed the Dagomys agreement, ensuing in a cease-fire and the deployment of peacekeepers to the conflict zone and the formation of the Joint Control Commission including Georgia, South Ossetia, Russia and North Ossetia.
