TIRASPOL, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Authorities of Moldova’s independence-minded Transdnestria region, also known as the unrecognized Dniester Republic, have restricted the opportunities of entry for the mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe /OSCE/.
“Members of the mission can enter the Dniester Republic’s territory only through the Bendenry-Chisinau and Dubossary-Criuliani international border-crossing points,” the republic’s State Security Committee said Wednesday, adding that this regulation does not apply to the mission members who are engaged in the activity of the Mixed Control Commission in charge of a peacekeeping operation in the region.
The Transdnestria authorities explain for their decision by “numerous encroachments on the rules and mandate of the mission’s activity by some of its staff-members who have committed the acts inconsistent with their official functions and duties while staying on the territory of the Dniester Republic.”
As another reason, they point to the report that the chief of the OSCE mission, Jennifer Brush, made at the plenary session of the OSCE Permanent Council last November. The SSC described it “biased beyond comparison and totally standing at variance with reality”.
The statement says the measures are provisional and will stay in effect until normalization of cooperation with the OSCE mission.
