Germany is the most influential country in Western Europe and it aims to report particular results in the Transnistrian conflict settlement process at yearend, analyst Vladimir Socor, of Jamestown Foundation and Eurasia Daily Monitor, said in an interview for Radio Free Europe. According to him, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany realizes that it will not have what to boast of at the end of the year and thus offers concessions on the part of Chisinau for the reason that it cannot obtain concessions on the part of Tiraspol, or, more exactly, of Moscow, IPN reports.

The analyst noted that after seeing the conditions of Moscow, Germany suggested recognizing the license numbers of Transnistria and the region’s telephone prefix as well as the diplomas issued by the University of Tiraspol.

“Moscow in the past also tried to impose legal obligations on Chisinau so that this implemented the decisions taken in the 5+2 format talks. The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs justly feels that Chisinau is the weaker side and can make concessions so that Germany achieves results that it could report at yearend. Berlin does its best for a meeting in the 5+2 format to take place by this yearend. But Tiraspol and Moscow impose the aforementioned conditions,” stated Vladimir Socor.

According to him, the given conditions represent gradual recognition of the independence of the Transnistrian region and it is very dangerous for the Moldovan authorities to accept, for example, to implement the decisions taken in the meetings held in the 5+2 format.

The Transnistrian conflict settlement talks in the 5+2 format haven’t been held for over a year and a half. After the visit paid by the Special Representative of the German OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Meier-Klodt to Moldova, it was announced that the next meeting in the given format will take place at the beginning of June.
