Transdniester asks UN to recognize independence

The Foreign Ministry in Tiraspol sent an official letter to the United Nations asking that the Transdniester Republic be acknowledged internationally, according to Moldovan news agency Unimedia, quoted by Hotnews. The document mentions the decision of the Court of The Hague, last week, according to witch the Kosovo declaration of independence did not violate the international law. “The Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transdniester) finds yet again and notifies the UN that the Republic meets all international criteria to act as an independent state and all necessary conditions to be acknowledged as such on international level,” is stated in the document released by the news wire regnum.ru.

“The Foreign Ministry urges the United Nations, alongside other international organizations, to take an active part in defining common criteria for the acknowledgment of states, which have proved their viability for years,” is further stated in the document. The Tiraspol authorities made a similar claim in 2008, following the acknowledgment of Kosovo’s independence by several UN member states.

Transdniester proclaimed its independence in 1990, which was further confirmed by a referendum in 2006.
