MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. Stagnation of negotiations on peace settlement in Moldova’s much-troubled independence-minded Transdniestria (Dniester) region in the 5+1 format causes big concern in Russia, Ambassador at Large Sergei Gubarev said on Wednesday.
He represents Russia at the permanent meeting for political issues in the format of the Transdniestria peace settlement process.
"Only two conferences instead of the five or six, which the parties had agreed on, were held in 2014, and they didn’t manage to hold a single official meeting from January through to June 2015," Gubarev said. "The prime cause of the situation is the continuing deterioration of dialogue between Moldova’s government and Transdniestrian authorities."
"But international mediators should have a say in rectifying the situation," he said.
"We’re working actively both with the parties (to the Transdniestrian conflict - TASS) and with the mediators," Gubarev said. "We think the pause (in the talks) should get dragged out, as the resumption of the process in 2011 after a break of six years was too costly for everyone.".
