Nauru to consider recognition of South Ossetia
The parliament of the Republic of Nauru will consider the issue of recognition of independence of South Ossetia. This was stated Kiren Keke, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Finance of Nauru, at his meeting in Tskhinvali with Stanislav Kochiev, chairman of the parliament of South Ossetia.
The issue will be considered in late December at the session of the Parliament of Nauru. Knowing that the Republic of Nauru is a UN member, Mr Kochiev supported this opportunity.
The official delegation of Nauru (island state in the western part of the Pacific) came on December 12 for getting acquainted with South Ossetia. Apart from Mr Keke, the delegation includes vice-chair of the parliament Lendon Deireragea, chairman of the parliamentary budget committee Raik Solomon and adviser to the foreign minister Ben van der Sande.
