ZAVIDOVO (Tver Region), (Sputnik) – Neguta said that on Friday he communicated to the Moldovan government one of the thesis of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov about "a request from Russia that Moldova would not insist on inclusion [of the issue]."
"They thanked me for communicating this talk. The decision is of course to be made in the coming days," Neguta added.
The news comes after the Moldova Constitutional Court ruled the Russian presence in the ethnic Russian and Ukrainian dominated region as illegal. In a letter published August 22, the former Soviet republic asked the UN General Assembly to discuss a complete withdrawal of foreign armed forces from Transnistria at its regular session in September.
Transnistria, a region which has a predominantly ethic Russian and Ukrainian population, seceded from the Soviet Republic of Moldova for fear of its possible reunion with Romania in 1990. The separation led to a conflict that ended in a ceasefire announced on July 21, 1992, but the conflict remains unresolved.
