Prospects for Unfreezing Moldova's Frozen Conflict in Transnistria, Briefing of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, June 14, 2011 [open pdf - 2MB]
This is a series of June 2011 briefings titled "Prospects for Unfreezing Moldova's Frozen Conflict in Transnistria" before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Mark Milosch: "This morning, we will examine the human cost of Moldova's frozen conflict with its breakaway region of Transnistria and the prospects for resolving this 20-year-old conflict. We say it's a frozen conflict because it was settled not by a peace agreement, but simply by agreeing to freeze each side's positions. [...] Today, we'll examine two general questions. First, given the frozenness of the situation, how can we address the human rights and humanitarian concerns in Transnistria? Second, and more optimistically, can the conflict be unfrozen? What should our policy be to promote the reintegration of Transnistria into Moldovan Government? We are fortunate to have an impressive panel of experts, and I will now turn the microphone over to Winsome Packer, staff advisor at the commission." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Phil Gingrey, Mark Milosch, Kyle Parker, Igor Munteanu, Vlad Spanu, Vladimir Socor, Lyndon K. Allin, Christopher H. Smith, Phil Gingrey, Igor Munteanu, Vlad Spanu, Lyndon K. Allin, and Matthew Rojansky.
