Special representative of the OSCE president in office Heikki Talvitie qualifies as positive the progress registered by the EU Assistance Mission at the Moldovan-Ukrainian Border. According to a communique of the OSCE mission to Chisinau, quoted by Info-Prim Neo, the Finnish official has said at a meeting with EUBAM chief Ferenc Banfi the EU Mission has demonstrated its effectiveness. The Finnish Presidency fully supports its activity, the official has added. Banfi has presented Talvitie the EUBAM’s activity and the efforts made to settle the Transnistrian conflict. Heikki Talvitie is on a trip to Chisinau to meet on Wednesday, February 27, speaker Marian Lupu. The EU Border Assistance Mission started working later in 2005.
