Chisinau, 8 December /MOLDPRES/ - Discussions on the issue of the posts of the Transnistrian power wielding structures, abusively set in the Security Zone, were resumed within the Joint Control Commission (JCC) in Bender today, the Reintegration Policies Bureau has reported.
The Joint Military Command fixed their presence in its report for the period 30 November - 6 December 2022.
The representatives of the OSCE Mission in Moldova, who made 12 trips to the Security Zone in last November, also confirmed the existence of illegal posts with armed staff and obstacles made of concrete, as well as bags with sand at the entries/exits into/from more settlements. An illegal mobile post of the so-called ‘’border guards’’ was noticed at the western edge of Gasca settlement: the road leading to the Zolotievca village was blocked with wire and other improvised materials.
Given that, for reasons of the work of these illegal posts, the situation stays complicated in the Security Zone, Moldova’s Delegation reminded that, under the ceasefire agreement from 21 July 1992 and its status, the Joint Control Commission is empowered to ensure the order and security in the perimeter of responsibility of the Joint Peacekeeping Forces. The delegation members emphasized that any unilateral action, carried out without JCC’s acceptance, such as the setting of additional posts and armed staff, represents a serious infringement of the basic acts of the peacekeeping operation at Dniester.
In the context, Moldova’s delegation at the meeting demanded the cessation of the abusive actions and unconditional removal of the Tiraspol’s illegal posts from the Security Zone.
The discussions on the subject will continue at a meeting on 15 December 2022.
