Moldova's Reintegration Bureau on Friday denied accusations against Moldovan authorities that Chisinau allegedly intends to start military operations in unrecognized Transnistria. This is reported by NewsMaker.
"The Moldovan authorities did not plan and do not plan to destabilize the fragile situation on the Dnister. On the contrary, Chisinau was and remains open to a meaningful dialogue that would lead to a final and solid settlement of the Transnistrian problem," the agency said in a statement.
The Bureau of Reintegration added that the spread of false reports about Chisinau's military plans "endangers the security of Moldova and stability in the unstable region."
Earlier on Friday, former President of Moldova Ihor Dodon (who is currently under house arrest in a corruption case) accused the country's authorities of discussing the takeover of Moldova by Romania.
In addition, according to Dodon, "some foreign actors" are persuading President Maya Sanda to create a new hotbed of conflict with the Russian Federation in Transnistria so that Chisinau can justify the intervention of NATO troops from Romania.
