VIENNA, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Another round of the negotiations on settlement of the conflict in Transdniestria is due in Vienna on April 10-11, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Ambadssador for Special Assignments, head of the Russian delegation, Sergei Gubarev said.
The relations between the Dniester’s two shores have soured. Tiraspol has accused Chisinau of a new wave of the economic blockade following introduction of higher taxes for economic agents in Transdniestria. Moldova, in its turn, has accused the Transdniestrian security forces of provocations in the security zone of the Transdniestria conflict, where managers of a Moldovan school and a group of Moldovan peacekeepers had been detained. Following the incident, Transdniestria’s foreign ministry asked to postpone the upcoming negotiations in Vienna, but after the latest meeting between Shtanski and Moldova’s deputy premier Evgeny Karpov the parties agreed Chisinau lifts the higher taxes in March.
The negotiations are complicated by Chisinau’s instating on discussion of Transdniestria’s status. Transdniestria says the issue is premature and suggests focusing on social and economic cooperation to improve mutual trust.
