Pridnestrovie has always been based on the priorities of solving problems at the negotiating table


“We have always expressed support for a dialogue both with Kishinev and Kiev in order to consider and resolve burning issues. We have a lot of contradictions in the economy, with the movement of people, capital, and without solving these problems it is impossible to form the climate of trust that will allow to solve more complex political problems,” - drew attention Yevgeny Shevchuk.

According to the president, the Moldovan side demonstrates a willingness to discuss the issues that Pridnestrovie puts on the agenda, but, unfortunately, mutually acceptable solutions on a great number of issues failed to be found.

“But we have the small steps that got a number of problems moving and we expect this dynamics will be strengthened and expanded in other areas”, - said the president.

Evgeny Shevchuk also stressed that the foreign policy vector of Pridnestrovie has not changed, the country tends invariably towards Russia and the Eurasian Union, but it is forced to develop economic relations not only with the CIS countries, but also with the EU.

“The markets of Belarus and Kazakhstan are attractive for our products, we have, on the one hand, appropriate opportunities, agreed upon with Russia, but we cannot pass without Moldovan documents through Ukraine. We want at the same time to trade also with the European market, because they are close. But the agreements signed by the Moldovan side with the EU, do not consider the interests of our industry. If this agreement is implemented, the majority of our enterprises will have to cease to exist. But the compromise is always a good will of the parties, and not only Pridnestrovie. We hope that until the end of 2015 we will be able to find some compromises, perhaps, interim, with European representatives that will allow not to worsen the situation of our economic agents. We need to lift the blockade on economic activities and transport logistics as a whole,” - said President Yevgeny Shevchuk.
