Ambassador Kelly Statement of Support for Restraint from Unilateral Actions in Transnistria Conflict

The Permanent Council to the OSCE - Vienna, Austria



AS DELIVERED

The United States supports the June 17 statement by OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara regarding the Transnistrian authority’s so-called legal act on its border. We support the negotiating process within the 5+2 format and call on the sides to adhere to earlier agreements on freedom of movement, and to make progress in light of the next round of 5+2 talks, to be held in Vienna on July 16 and 17.

The United States strongly supports efforts to promote a peaceful settlement of the Transnistria conflict—a settlement that respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Moldova and provides a special status for Transnistria.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
