OSCE President pleads for withdrawal of Russian troops stationed in Moldova's breakaway Transdniester region

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's chairman in office, Belgian Foreign Minister Karel De Gucht said in Chisinau on June 1 that Russian peacekeepers in Moldova's breakaway Transdniester region should be replaced by an international contingent. De Gucht, on a two-day visit to Moldova, said a new international force could monitor the Transdniester segment of the Ukrainian-Moldovan border, as well as munitions dumps in the region. De Gucht also said new customs rules in place on the Transdniestrian portion of the Ukrainian-Moldovan border are important for transparency.
