Tiraspol wants round of talks with Chisinau the soonest possible

The breakaway Moldovan republic of Transnistria calls for the soonest resumption of the 5+2 talks between Tiraspol and Chisinau, mediated by Russia, Ukraine and OSCE and observed by the US and the EU, the so-called Transnistrian foreign ministry said.

"(Transnistrian top diplomat Vitaly) Ignatyev has officially put forward his initiative to the OSCE presidency to organize the five-plus-two talks as soon as possible," the ministry’s press service said in a statement.

At the meeting, Tiraspol is expected to voice its concerns about Moldova and Ukraine’s plans to establish joint control at the Transnistrian section of the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.

An OSCE spokesperson earlier played down the concerns, saying that unofficial talks are sufficient for an exchange of opinions on the issue, TASS reports.
