Problems in relations of Russia with Abkhazia and South Ossetia show that RF refers to these republics as equal partners, according to the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

«If our relationship was all rosy and relationships was not, in principle, it would be proof that Russia really does not apply to Abkhazia and South Ossetia as equal partners. What she controls everything, and all problems are solved as it needs. But the fact that we have problems in relationships, means that we have a relationship of equal sovereign States, each of which has its own national interests. Its strategy of national development,» — said Kosachev at the meeting in the Federation Council with journalists from Abkhazia and South Ossetia, organized by MIA «Russia today».

«There are problems. Not that I (SIC) think is an objective statement. But I do not see this, definitely, no reason for alarm. Any problems we are able to discuss openly, able to resolve to mutual satisfaction. These problems have a lot in the past,» added the Senator.

Kosachev noted that over the past 10 years since the announcement of the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia managed to solve the main task — ensuring the safety of people. «This problem is solved exhaustively, infringement of interests of Abkhazia and South Ossetia have no prospects,» said the Senator, adding that Russia fulfils its obligations in this area.

In addition, Moscow is fulfilling its partnership obligations in the implementation of programs socially-economic development republics.

He called counterproductive practices by Georgia and its allies in the isolation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, stressing that it is contrary to international standards, which only the people themselves determine their own future.
