OSCE Chairperson will visit Moldova for Transnistria Dialogue

Maltese authorities are following the development of the situation between Moldova and the unrecognised Transnistrian Moldovan Republic (TMR). The OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Chairman-in-Office and the country’s Foreign Minister, Jan Borg, is going to visit Chisinau, the press service of the Maltese Foreign Ministry told TASS.

“The Maltese Chairmanship is closely following the developments on both banks of the Dniester. We understand and welcome that there is indeed an ongoing dialogue between the sides,” the ministry said. The press service noted that Malta highly appreciates the commitment of both sides to a peaceful settlement of all issues.


The OSCE will continue to work on “a comprehensive settlement of the conflict based on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova within its internationally recognised borders with the special status of Transnistria within Moldova,” the Maltese Foreign Ministry said.

It is noted that the visit will be aimed at “strengthening confidence and stability between the parties in the interests of all people living on both banks of the Dniester.”

On March 2, Moldovan President Maia Sandu said that the country’s accession to the European Union (EU) could be a historic chance to unite the two banks of the Dniester. According to Sandu, the current authorities promise not to allow such conflicts to recur “even if there are forces which are trying to create discord between us.”
