TIRASPOL, August 31 /TASS/. The authorities of Moldova’s unrecognized Transnistria are concerned with the low intensity of negotiations with Moldova at all levels, Yevgeny Shevchuk, Trannistria's president, and acting foreign minister Vitaly Ignatyev said at a meeting on Wednesday.
"Regretfully, the dynamics of the talks has been low. The Moldovan side has refused to communicate at the level of expert groups and representatives for political issues," the presidential press service quoted Ignatyev as saying. The Transnistria foreign minister noted a number of urgent problems in the republic’s relations with Moldova, of which the transport problem is the thorniest.
In July this year, Ukraine banned the transportation of excise products to Transnistria by railroad. The delivery is possible only via the Moldovan territory. The new restrictions aggravated the supply of essential socially significant goods, including fuel.
Therefore, the government in Tiraspol threatened both Ukraine and Moldova to retaliate with similar measures. Ignatyev believes that Ukraine had imposed the restrictions at the request of the government in Chisinau who wants to control the import-export operations of the unrecognized Dniester Republic.
Earlier, the foreign minister of Transnistria called on participants in the "five plus two" talks for the Dniester settlement (Moldova, the Dniester Republic, the OSCE, Russia, Ukraine and observers from the EU and the United States) to convene an extraordinary meeting.
Germany, which is presiding over the OSCE this year, has succeeded in resuming the "five plus two" talks, which have been frozen for the past two years. During the last meeting in Berlin, Moldova and Transnistria agreed to give up unilateral actions and resolve all the problems through talks. They also agreed to establish cooperation in the sphere of transport, communication and environment and remove reciprocal barriers.
Moscow is concerned with Kiev’s moves directed against the Dniester Republic.
