Announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR

On October 21, Pridnestrovian representative for political issues, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the PMR Vladimir Yastrebchak received an address of the Head of the OSCE Mission to Moldova, Ambassador Philip Remler which informed of the proposal of the Greek Chairmanship of the OSCE to hold meeting with political representatives of the sides, mediators and observers in the Moldova-Pridnestrovie settlement in Vienna, on November 6.

According to the Head of the OSCE Mission, representatives of other mediators and observers have already accepted an invitation of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office.

While making a decision about the possibility of participating in such a meeting, the Pridnestrovian side proceeded from the necessity to continue collaboration with the Greek OSCEChairmanship as well as with the rest of our international partners.

We are grateful to mediators for their efforts aimed at forging a constructive dialogue.

Meanwhile, the Pridnestrovian position remains the same: the dialogue can be effective if it is based on the principles of equality, mutual respect, non-use of force and any forms of pressure, as well as observance of all earlier accords, including the Joint Statement of the Presidents of Russia, Moldova and Pridnestrovie from March 18, 2009. We expect the Vienna platform to become a good possibility for the interested constructive exchange of views and for clearing up positions of all the members of consultations regarding the above mentioned principles of further cooperation.
