During the meeting, diplomats held a thorough discussion on the current situation in the process of relations regulating between Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova. The Pridnestrovian Foreign Minister pointed to the ongoing dialogue degradation due to the Moldovan side which is evading to implement the 2016-2018 reached agreements, a fact that causes lack of dynamics in resolving problems within vehicles, telecommunication, criminal cases and interbank cooperation issues.
