Romanian Premier Says EU Must Become Involved in Resolving Transdniester Conflict

Romanian Prime Minister Nastase said in Iasi on 19 August that the EU should become involved in the resolution of the Transdniester conflict and that it should appoint a special envoy for this purpose, Mediafax reported.

Nastase said his government would be willing to cooperate with such an envoy in order to counteract "the aberrant measures taken by the Transdniester authorities against Romanian schools."

Nastase also said Romania is willing to grant scholarships to students of the closed schools, but that this must be done with care, as "this is precisely what the Transdniester authorities are after: they want a purge" of the Romanian-speaking population in the region.
