Addressing the members of the Consultative Meeting, the head of state said that foreign policy issues have always been and remain among the priorities of state policy. At the same time, Vadim Krasnoselsky once again emphasized the unchanged position of the republic's leadership. Attempts to discuss the issues of political status are untimely and inappropriate. The status of Pridnestrovie was defined by the people in the 2006 referendum the President is sure.

The President outlined the actual problems that need to be solved: unlocking of Slobodka; recognition of CCP diplomas; opening of a bridge across the Dniester River in the area of. Bychok with a mandatory condition of guarantees for its non-use for military purposes; approval of international registration plate for Pridnestrovian transport.
The founders of the republic asked the President questions of interest to them. One of them concerned Moldo-Ukrainian border posts on the border of Pridnestrovie. According to the President, when the negotiations are resumed in the "5 + 2" format, this issue should be the first one on the agenda.
The first Pridnestrovian deputies are also worried about economic issues. In this regard, the head of state drew attention to the positive dynamics of this year. Despite the difficulties, production in general grew by 6.4%, exports by 36%, in particular, to the Russian Federation - by 51%, imports increased by 25%, and retail trade by 20%.
Following the meeting, the founders of the republic expressed their support for the appeal of the leadership of Pridnestrovie to the UN with a request to grant the republic the status of an observer in this international organization; recommended that the foreign policy department pay more attention to informing citizens about the negotiation process, including the already reached agreements.
