Head of the OSCE delegation to Moldova, Claus Neukirch, promised Tiraspol assistance in solving current problems and intensifying the negotiation process.
This was the subject of his meeting with a representative of the Transdniestrian administration, Alexander Korshunov, who spoke about a number of topical issues of interaction between the parties, infotag.md reports.
Korshunov again spoke about “blocking by Moldova of cargoes for Transdniestria, including medicines and food”.
“On Moldova’s customs territory, there are now several trucks with medicines. It is claimed that these are not certified products. However, according to our information, there are medicines from German, Baltic and Turkish pharmaceutical companies, i.e. they meet the standards of the European Union. It is absolutely wrong to claim that these medicines are not certified”, Korshunov emphasized.
According to him, because of the lack of medicines, Transdniestrian residents with serious diseases such as tuberculosis, diabetes and hepatitis may face difficulties.
According to a Tiraspol media report, “the Head of the OSCE Mission to Moldova promised to facilitate the delivery of medicines to Transdniestria, and is also ready to help intensify the 5+2 negotiation process”.
The day before, the Bureau for Reintegration categorically refuted Tiraspol’s claims, noting that “Chisinau neither introduced any measures of the so-called ‘economic blockade’ nor discriminated against companies from the left bank of the Dniester, and the requirement to respect the current legislation is the same for both sides”.
