Press release on the Official Meeting of the Permanent Conference for Political Questions in the Framework of the Negotiating Process on the Transnistrian Settlement
On October 9-10, the Permanent Conference for Political Questions in the Framework of the Negotiating Process on the Transnistrian Settlement (5+2 format) held its official meeting in Bratislava. The participants discussed the progress in the implementation of the agreements formalised in the protocols of the 2016 Berlin, 2017 Vienna and 2018 Rome meetings in the 5+2 format. They also outlined existing problems and priority measures to solve them.
The final protocol could not be agreed on in view of considerable differences in the approaches of the parties. It was agreed that the work on the protocol will continue with the assistance of the mediators (the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the OSCE) and observers (the EU and the US) in the 5+2 format.
