Moldova asked the United Nations to include the issue of complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria to the agenda of the 72nd session of General Assembly. Such letter was addressed by the Permanent Representative of Moldova to the United Nations Viktor Moraru, reports DW.
Chisinau is convinced that the presence of the military “poses a threat to international peace and security.”
Moraru asked the UN to support Moldova's efforts aimed at completing the process of "unconditional, orderly and complete withdrawal of foreign armed forces from its national territory."
He also cited the OSCE declaration adopted in 1999 that welcomed "Russia's obligations to complete the withdrawal of Russian forces from the territory of Moldova by the end of 2002."
The 72nd session of the UN General Assembly will be held on September 12.
As it was reported earlier Ukraine and Moldova discussed regulation of Transnistria conflict. The parties talked through joint border and custom control along the entire state border, - Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry.
Ukraine has been supporting peaceful regulation of Transnistrian conflict by the means of diplomacy in keeping with Moldova’s territorial integrity.
Transnistria is a self-styled breakaway state, which broke off from Moldova in 1990; the territory ruled by pro-Russian government is now only recognized by other breakaway states such as Abkhazia, South Ossetia and The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
