    We hope the situation can be resolved through dialog and consultation.
    With all due respect to my honourable friend, any room for potential dialogue has been lost as Russia continues its pursuit of unjust and unnecessary action against a state that has breached no international laws, which is more than can be said for its counterpart in all of this.

    Tonga would like to point out that far from being granted independence South Ossetia has been annexed.

    The US will support all states in the region who may feel the threat from Russia as this crisis is ongoing. At this time, South Ossetia and Abkhazia remains Georgian sovereign territory in the eyes of the USA.

    Whilst Canada does agree with the US delegate insofar as it feels Russia has absolutely no right to do what it has, doesn't the US delegate feel South Ossetia in particular would benefit (after, of course, a referendum) from becoming part of Russia?

    At this time the US is unwilling for Georgia to follow such a course of action as we do not see it possibly representing the views of the peaceful civilians living in South Ossetia and Abkhazia. It would be extremely difficult to overcome the barriers associated with such a vote and may induce more violence in the short-term.

    In the current climate of this crisis the US does not believe this vote to be anything more than a scapegoat for Russia's disproportionate actions.

    If the "citizens" of those regions didn't have sepratist views, why did Georiga send armed personnel there to quel them?

    Russia is arguing that far from it's actions misrepresenting the peaceable citizens of the breakaway regions, it is the only country who is fighting on their behalf. there is some grounding for it, they wouldn't be separatist regions if some people in them were not separatists.

    After being enlightened by ukebert's answer to my last post, I see what you mean by this.

    My answer to this would be that dialogue needs to take place between the Georgian representative and yourself before a successful referendum could be held and a valid result taken from this. We would, however, only allow a referendum to be held after a full withdrawal of Russian forces had taken place and a peacekeeping force be installed whilst talks take place.

    I would argue that this is implied by my resolution, currently working it's way through the SC

    The resolution currently under debate allows the referendum to take place regardless of whether or not Russian forces are in the region. Russia's continued presence in the region regardless of their intended motives is totally unacceptable.

    Perhaps the Russian delegate would like to watch his words, the effect made far worse by the current situation that you have brought on yourself. The US has not encouraged any country to condemn your actions and we would not wish to.

    Russia is more than happy to conclude that certain countries are condemning them because of economic and diplomatic pressure excerted by the USA.

    The US delegate urges the Russian delegate not to make such wild and unfounded accusations again in the future in what can only be perceived as an attempt to make itself feel better about the path it has taken. These countries have condemned your country's actions in their own manner without the need for the US to apply any pressure, yet your warped view of the rest of the world does not allow you to see your actions for what they really are.
