Moldova is asking the UN to include the issue of the full withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria in the agenda of the 72nd session of the General Assembly. A letter was published by the permanent representative of Moldova to the UN Victor Moraru, reports Deutsche Welle.
In Chisinau say that the presence of soldiers of the Russian Federation “constitutes a threat to international peace and security,” the journalists quote the letter Maroro.
The document refers to “unconditional, orderly and complete withdrawal of foreign armed forces” from the territory of Moldova.
Maroro cited in the text of the appeal an excerpt from the Declaration of the OSCE, adopted in 1999, which welcomed “the commitment by the Russian Federation to complete withdrawal of Russian forces from Moldovan territory by the end of 2002”.
72nd session of the UN General Assembly will open on September 12.
