BASEL, December 5. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Friday called for complying with the agreements on the Transdniestrian settlement.

Commenting on Russia’s position on prospects for settling the frozen conflicts on the post-Soviet space, he said Russia has only one plan - to stimulate the parties in every possible way to make them reach an agreement because the conflict can be settled only by those who take part in it.

“External players can help. This is related to the Karabakh settlement, the Transdniestrian settlement and to the Ukrainian crisis,” Lavrov said.

“The main thing is that when the parties reached any agreement, external players should carefully keep it and not to throw in a provocation as it was in 2003,” he said.

In 2003 the settlement plan initialled by the Transdniestrian and Moldovan presidents was not signed because the European Union demanded Moldova should not sign the document. “Since then we’ve been tormented by this problem,” Lavrov said.

“In 1997 Transdniestria and Moldova signed a memorandum on Transdniestria’s rights to foreign external activities. The memorandum has worked for so long. Now it is not being implemented,” he said.

“Probably, an attempt is made to create conditions for economic strangulation in order to force Transdniestria to give up its fair position. What has been reached should be implemented,” Lavrov said.
