Asked by newsmen about the existence of the so-called third side in the conflict zone, Kokoity said that this question had better be put to Georgian Foreign Minister Irakly Okruashvili.
"Our defense ministers are busy identifying the side engaged in provocative fire attacks at Ossetian and Georgian villages," said the South Ossetian leader.
Georgy Khaindrava, Georgian State Minister for Conflict Settlement, praised the work of the commission.
"Our defense ministries are conducting joint operations and we hope to get rid of these much-spoken-about "batmen." The Georgian side reports casualties every day despite all controversial statements," said Khaindrava.
Dealing with other results of the joint control commission's session, the Georgian state minister reported an agreement reached to set free three Georgian POWs Kobaladze, Durgvishvili and Surmava tonight. Of 39 Georgian policemen who were captured in the village of Vanati, South Ossetia, on July 8, 36 were released the day later.
