SUBJECT: TAJIKISTAN - CSTO MEETING AND POSSIBLE RECOGNITION
OF SOUTH OSSETIA AND ABKHAZIA

REF: STATE 93357



1. (C) Acting DCM delivered reftel demarche to Khusrav
Nosiri, Director of North American and European Affairs
(Assistant Secretary equivalent) on September 1. Nosiri said
he would pass the demarche to his superiors, and commented
that Tajikistan would likely maintain its current policy of
non-recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.



2. (C) Comment: In public remarks following the August 29
Rahmon-Medvedev bilateral meeting in Dushanbe President
Rahmon referred to the events in the Caucasus, saying that he
preferred to see "political-diplomatic" methods used to
resolve conflicts. He said nothing about the question of the
independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. We do not see
signs that Tajikistan will depart from its current position.
Post will report any substantive reaction to this demarche
septel. End Comment.
