The head of the ruling party in Georgia, Kobakhidze: Tbilisi does not recognize the referendum in South Ossetia

Tbilisi does not recognize the de facto referendum in South Ossetia on joining Russia. This was stated by the head of the ruling party “Georgian Dream – Democratic Georgia” Irakli Kobakhidze. His words on Saturday, May 14, leads TASS.

The politician explained that the country de facto would not recognize either the government of South Ossetia, or elections, or a referendum.

“In this regard, our position is very clear and precise. We will follow exactly this line,” Kobakhidze said, answering the corresponding question from journalists.
