The interlocutors exchanged views on the current situation in the negotiation process between Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova. They expressed a unified position on the need for systematic and rhythmic work in all the negotiation areas. They talked about the expediency of holding the next meeting in the 5+2 format without preliminary conditions. It was stressed that today, in fact, it is about resuscitating the dialogue in the “Permanent Conference...” format, since from June 2016 its participants have never gathered at the negotiating table.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR was surprised at the statements by the political representative from the Republic of Moldova Gheorghe Balan, made during the briefing on the results of today’s Bendery meeting. In particular, we refer to some alleged signals about a possible ban on the passage of vehicles with Pridnestrovian numbers through the territory of Ukraine.

The Foreign Ministry considers such statements irresponsible, manipulative and aimed at creating public nervousness about the freedom of movement of vehicles.
