The work of the Joint Control Commission and the Joint Military Command is systematically blocked by the Moldovan delegation in the JCC. Deputies of the Supreme Council are concerned about aggravation of the situation in the Security Zone. Today, the parliamentary commission on foreign policy and international relations held an online meeting with participation of the co-chairman of the Joint Control Commission from Pridnestrovie Oleg Belyakov, and the PMR Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Stetsyuk.

Oleg Belyakov recalled that agreement was signed on the principles of a peaceful settlement of the armed conflict on the Dniester in 1992. The peacekeeping operation launched by the guarantor country Russia continues to this day.

The co-chairman of the JCC from Pridnestrovie noted that recently the Moldovan side has been trying to include in the agenda issues that are not within the competence of the Joint Control Commission.

Oleg Belyakov emphasized that the system of blocking the work of the JCC could lead to disruption of the performance of the main functions of the peacekeeping operation. According to him, this will entail a public outcry and certain actions of the parties, which will be aimed at creating an unfriendly atmosphere, including in the Security Zone. The co-chairman of the JCC from Pridnestrovie added that such events are taking place permanently, in the context of some political aggravation of the situation in the Republic of Moldova.

The Parliamentary Commission on Foreign Policy and International Relations has prepared a draft statement of the Supreme Council on inadmissibility of aggravating the situation in the Security Zone.  

The Supreme Council considers it necessary to start holding bilateral consultations on the functioning of the peacekeeping operation on the Dniester with representatives of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.

The draft statement of the Supreme Council prepared by the Commission on Foreign Policy and International Relations will be considered by the deputies at a plenary session today.
