Transnistria says they have managed to normalize the talks with Moldova. At the regular meeting of the Joint Control Committee today, on April 21, the sides have discussed the results of the agreements made earlier within the enlarged meeting of the Joint Military Command (JMC).
Representatives of the governing body of the peacekeeping operation had repeatedly spotlighted a number of contradictions that impede decision making on a range of key issues.
“Today we have heard the report on the enlarged meeting of the Joint Militant Command. I say enlarged, as there were some elements we reported on at the previous meetings, for instance, that the Moldovan side started blocking the activity of the Command,” said Oleg Belyakov, the Head of the Transnistrian Delegation to the Joint Control Commission.
He said, “it has become known from the reports of the military chief that throughout the four meetings the military chief of the Moldovan side left the sitting hall of the Joint Military Command after discussion of the organizational issues and reports,” according to novostipmr.com.
“The information we have learned today from the representatives of the OSCE and the sides present at the meeting made us understand that the situation has been normalized to some extent,” Belyakov said.
As EADaily reported earlier, some artificial stagnation was observed in the activity of the Joint Military Command of the peacekeeping forces on the line of demarcation of the Moldova-Transnistria armed conflict. Transnistrian negotiators say, “The Moldovan side started blocking the activity of the Joint Military Command.” This has negatively affected the activity of the joint peacekeeping forces.
