According to him, the Transdniestrian leaders have taken a number of unilateral steps of late, which demonstrate their unwillingness to find a compromise in relations between the two sides.
The minister pointed out that all the initiatives of the Moldovan side to liven up the negotiations between Tiraspol (the administrative centre of the rebellious region) and Chisinau are not supported by Transdniestrian executives.
"But we are going to continue negotiations and hope for the early resumption of the work in the five-sided format," Sova stressed.
In accordance with the decree of Transdniestrian leader Igor Smirnov, as of January 1, 2004 all self-government bodies are banned to accept any documents, issued in Moldova, without re-registering them in Transdniestria. This concerns the educational diplomae, certificates of registration of civil status acts and real estate facilities.
