Chisinau, 30 March /MOLDPRES/ - The Joint Control Commission (JCC) held a meeting chaired by the delegation of the Transnistrian region in Bender on 29 March, the Reintegration Polices Bureau has reported.
Following the consideration of organizational aspects, at a proposal by the co-head of the Commission on behalf of Russia, Ilya Uvarov, JCC approved colonel Oleg Leukhin as superior military chief of the peacekeeping forces on behalf of Russia. Leukhin replaced colonel Sergey Ribakov, who ended his office trip.
Subsequently, according to the working agenda, a weekly report on the situation in the Security Zone on 22-27 March 2018, unveiled by the Joint Military Command, was heard and approved.
Also, the JCC components continued discussions to identify a solution as to the reopening of the movement on the bridge across the Dniester river nearby the villages Gura Bacului and Bacioc. In this respect, Moldova’s delegation proposed to include in the meeting’s draft official report a commitment, by which the sides are to commit not to resort to any actions uncoordinated within JCC, in terms of changing the infrastructure, numerical strength and composition of the power wielding forces and law enforcement bodies in the perimeter of the Security Zone.
The discussions on the Moldovan delegation’s proposal outlined viable solutions to overcome the present problem, most of which were accepted by the Commission’s components, especially by the Russian delegation.
At a proposal by the Transnistrian delegation, which demanded time for additional consultations, the taking of a decision was postponed for the next meeting, due on 5 April this year.
