Karel de Gucht: OSCE will not recognize the results of TRANSDNIESTER REFERENDUM

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) announced on July 21 that it would not recognize the results of Transdniester's proposed independence referendum. "The OSCE does not support a unilateral referendum questioning Moldova's territorial integrity and does not intend to monitor it," OSCE Chairman and Belgian Foreign Minister Karel de Gucht said, according to the OSCE's Mission in Moldova. "The referendum on Transdniester's future status will be made possible only by an agreement at the negotiating table, and when all necessary conditions for free and fair voting have been provided," de Gucht added.

Transdniester's Supreme Soviet voted on July 12 to hold the referendum on September 17.
