Moldova starts to de facto take over control over the state border in the Transnistrian region
As stated by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Pavel Filip, Moldova started to de facto take over control over the state border in the Transnistrian region through the establishment of joint Moldovan-Ukrainian checkpoints. Also, significant progress has been made in the relations between the government of Moldova and the authorities of the Transnistrian region.
“In late last November, we signed four protocols with the Transnistrian side, which means settlement of concrete problems for the citizens from both banks of Dniester. Besides, we also had a five-plus-two meeting in Austria, which ended with the signing of the Vienna Protocol”, Pavel Filip said.
Pavel Filip also specified that, following the unlocking of the talks and the progress from this year, in 2018, the government would work for the settlement of the conflict and finding a formula for the Transnistrian region as part of Moldova.
