TIRASPOL, August 12. /TASS/. Moldova’s Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Osipov will try to intensify the talks on the resolution of the Transdniestrian conflict during a meeting with Transdniestria’s Vice-Premier and Foreign Minister Nina Shtanski. The press service of the Bureau of Reintegration of the Moldovan government said on Wednesday that the meeting would take place on August 3 at the representative office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Tiraspol.
Participants in the "five plus two" negotiation format (Moldova, Transdniestria, the OSCE, Russia, Ukraine and observers from the EU and the United States) have been invited to the meeting as well.
"The Moldovan delegation hopes that the meeting organized after a long lapse will demonstrate the prospects for intensifying the dialogue," the press service said.
The vice-premier of the unrecognized republic accused Chisinau of exerting pressure on it. "The economic situation continues to deteriorate, and the problem of politically motivated criminal cases [against representatives of Tiraspol] has not been resolved, but, on the contrary, overgrew with new rather alarming incidents," Shtanski said.
Last September, this problem was the cause of Transdniestria’s refusal to take part in the talks in an extended format. According to Shtanski, the situation became absurd when not only members of the Cabinet but also negotiators involved in normalizing the bilateral relations at the inter-agency level found themselves in the status of defendants.
