However, Foreign Minister of Moldova’s breakaway Republic of Transdniestria, Nina Shtanski said, “This statement is only a half measure because at leat two delegations doubt we'll be able to prepare.”
“There are certain problems and we agreed to solve them and coordinate the date of the talks till June 20,” she said, adding that the dialogue on Transdniestria settlement would be continued at the OSCE conference in Munich next week.
There is a rollback in the talks on the Transdniestria settlement in the format 5+2, Russia’s ambassador at large and chief negotiator Sergei Gubarev told journalists on Friday after another round of consultations in Vienna.
“Regrettably, in a certain sense we have returned to the initial stage of the negotiating process, when the parties present their claims,” he noted. He said he disagreed with the proposal voiced by Radojko Bogojevic, special representative of the chairperson-in-office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), to hold a next round of consultation in just one month - on July 17-18. “It is not the frequency of our meetings that matters, but what matters is their efficiency. If the July round ends with a zero or next to zero result, it will discredit and to a certain degree devaluate the negotiating process,” Gubarev warned.
“Solving problems requires a big deal of political will,” he stressed.
