In the first part, the PMR’s President will outline the agenda and speak out on all points. The list of topical issues for the Pridnestrovian side is structured. It identifies both topics that have a long and rather rich history, and new aspects of the negotiation process that require detailed discussion and decision-making. The guests are offered an active form of dialogue with the current exchange of information, opinions and suggestions. In the second part of the discussion, it is proposed to focus on the participation of the Pridnestrovian public representatives in the conversation. Their invitation is a novelty for this kind of international meeting. This is the initiative of Vadim Krasnoselsky.
