Decision restricting diplomats' travelling to Transdniester suspended

On 8 February the Moldovan Foreign Ministry suspended a January decision requiring diplomats to obtain permits to travel to Transdniester. The ministry said that the suspension was aimed at allowing international monitoring ahead of the 6 March parliamentary elections throughout Moldova. Russia and Ukraine protested the permit requirement after their representatives had been twice prevented from travelling to Tiraspol.

Meanwhile Tiraspol rejected as a "transparent but badly staged provocation" the Moldovan Electoral Bureau's request that it organize voting in Transdniester for Moldova's 6 March parliamentary elections, in full compliance with the stipulations of the Moldovan Constitution and electoral legislation.
