Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a meeting with Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office for the Transdniestrian Settlement Process Franco Frattini, Moscow, June 6, 2018
Mr Frattini, once again it is very nice to see you. We have been cooperating very closely with you in practically all your capacities – in Rome, in Brussels, now in Vienna.
Nevertheless I would like to recall that we know that you are very pragmatic, action-oriented and very constructive. These are the qualities of a politician which are not readily available everywhere.
And certainly I’m glad to have this opportunity to discuss again the Transdniestrian settlement which is your competence now as you are the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office for the Transdniestrian Settlement Process.
So I know that there was a meeting of the 5+2 recently which was not without results in some modest problems, but some progress in the areas important for ordinary people has been made. We will be very much interested in listening to your assessments.
Once again, welcome!
