Today, the PMR’s Supreme Council plenary meeting adopted a statement in connection with the increasing tensions in the Security Zone fuelled by the Republic of Moldova.



Welcoming the US Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Moldova Dereck Hogan, Vadim Krasnoselsky said that there have been events that require joint discussion since the previous meeting. The problematic aspect is a serious slowdown in the dynamics of the negotiation process between Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova. “The negotiation process is almost stagnating. The prospects for resuming a normal dialogue are not yet clear,” the PMR’s President noted. Vadim Krasnoselsky emphasized that humanitarian and social issues are accumulating.



We paid attention to further emotional rhetoric of the Moldovan representative in the international negotiation process.

While Moldovan healthcare system is balancing on the verge of collapse and medical institutions cannot cope with the flow of sick people, the Moldovan side has resorted to tactics of inventing an external enemy image in order to refocus the public attention on the allegedly existing problems in the Security Zone, aimed at discrediting the Dniester Peacekeeping Mission.



The Foreign Ministry hosted a meeting of the PMR's Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev with the head of the OSCE Mission to Moldova Claus Neukirch. The meeting was also attended by the Chairman of the Pridnestrovian Republican Bank Vladislav Tidva and acting Head of the PMR's State Telecommunications Service Vladimir Belyaev.

Parties mutually agreed that the document will be valid until December 31, current year.
