TIRASPOL, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Leader of Moldova’s breakaway region of Transdniester Yevgeny Shevchuk said the republic would expand trade, economic, social, humanitarian, scientific, educational and cultural cooperation with Abkhazia.
An agreement to this effect was reached at the meeting with Abkhazian President Aleksander Ankvab on Monday.
“In order to develop economic cooperation with Abkhazia and South Ossetia Transdniester decided to introduce certain trade benefits,” Shevchuk said.
Ankvab said Abkhazia and Transdniester had signed a treaty on friendship and cooperation in January 1993. “For us it was a very important document saying we’re not alone and we’ll win a victory,” the Abkhazian leader said.
Shevchuk and Ankvab instructed the foreign ministers to do their best to step up interaction on resolving issues of mutual interest.
The Transdniester delegation takes part in the events on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the victory of the Abkhazian people in the 1992-1992 war. On September 30, the republic marks Independence Day.
