UNITED NATIONS, October 1. /TASS/. Moldova insists on the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from the self-proclaimed republic of Transdniestria and the deployment of an international civilian mission there, Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet said on Thursday speaking at the general political debate at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.
"We reiterate our firm stance with regard to the requirement for the withdrawal of Russian troops and weaponry from the territory of Moldova in accordance with the provisions of our Constitution and international commitments," Strelet said.
"We believe that the peacekeeping operation has fulfilled its mandate and should be transformed into a civil mission with the relevant international mandate," Moldova’s prime minister said.
According to him, in spite of the internal and external challenges, Moldova will follow the path of the peaceful settlement of the Transdniestrian conflict. "By restoring confidence and promoting dialogue, we must move step by step towards the comprehensive settlement of this conflict. It must be resolved in compliance with the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Moldova by granting Transdniestria a special status within the internationally recognized borders of our country," Strelet said.
Russian peacekeepers were deployed to Transdniestria during the 1992 armed conflict. This made it possible to stop the civil war, Chisinau and Tiraspol began talks to seek the peaceful settlement of the conflict. Tiraspol does not support Moldova’s stance on the issue. "The presence of the Russian peacekeepers is the key to preserving peace and security," President of the unrecognized republic Yevgeny Shevchuk said.
