Meeting with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Hungary Matyash Siladi


Acting Foreign Minister of Pridnestrovie Vitaly Ignatiev met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Hungary to the Republic of Moldova Matyash Siladi at the MFA of the PMR.

The sides discussed a number of topical issues of bilateral interaction between Pridnestrovie and Hungary in the social and humanitarian sphere, including the prospects for implementation of a number of joint cultural projects in the near future.

The two sides also exchanged opinions on the current state of the negotiation process between Pridnestrovie and Moldova. Vitaly Ignatiev emphasized the negative factors that cause serious concern in Pridnestrovie, in particular, Moldova’s continuing practice to avoid the systematic interaction with Pridnestrovian representatives at the level of expert (working) groups. According to the Foreign Minister of PMR, the RM’s position does not allow to count on the successful preparation for the visit of representatives of the mediators and observers in the 5+2 format planned for April this year, by which time the parties agreed to develop a number of practical proposals to resolve the existing acute problems.

At the same time, as Vitaly Ignatiev noted during the meeting, Moldova continues to strengthen measures to put pressure on Pridnestrovie, which effect the socio-economic situation in the country negatively.

At the end of the meeting the sides agreed to maintain high dynamics of contacts on issues of mutual interest.
