Tiraspol would-be legislature sets legal framework for negotiations with Moldova

The Transnistrian parliament adopted on Wednesday a law on the framework of negotiations with Moldova, the woopulde-be parliament's press service said in a statement, quoted by Sputnik.

Under the bill, the negotiation process must be conducted to reach a settlement and normalize bilateral relations and rest on the principals of mutual respect for sovereignty and independence, neighborly relations, as well as the maintenance of peace and stability in the region.

Transnistria, a region with a predominantly Russian and Ukrainian population, broke away from the Soviet Republic of Moldova in 1990, fearing the country might seek to reunify with neighboring Romania. The move triggered a war which ended in a ceasefire in July 1992, but the conflict has remained unresolved.
