US diplomats prevented from entering Transdniester

Separatist guards on Transdniester's de facto border with Moldova on May 23 prevented three U.S. diplomats from reaching Tiraspol, where they were to attend an OSCE meeting. The news agency Basa reported that in may U.S. officials were barred five times from entering the breakaway region.

The United States has no formal role in the resolution of the Transdniester conflict, though, like the EU, it is an observer in five-way talks between Transdniester, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, and the OSCE. Multilateral talks were last held in February 2006, at which point Transdniester withdrew.
