Russian news agency reported Russia and South Ossetia will on Tuesday sign an agreement, which will stipulate the deployment of a Russian military base in the republic, a South Ossetian official said Friday.
RIA Novosti quoted Znaur Gassiyev, the chairman of the South Ossetian parliament as saying President Eduard Kokoity gave orders to lawmakers to prepare all the necessary documents for the signing of the agreement.
Georgia and Russia went to war over South Ossetia on August 8 in an attempt to regain control over the separatist republic, which split from Tbilisi in the early 1990s.
Russia's president signed decrees Tuesday recognizing South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states.
