Thank you, Mr. Chair.

The United States recognizes Moldova’s concern that the recent opening of a Transnistria office in Moscow will distract from the OSCE-led 5+2 settlement process. Full respect for Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders is a basic tenet of the 5+2. Actions that could erode trust and goodwill risk undermining the process, which is in no one’s interest.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
