Summary

This resolution reaffirms that it is U.S. policy to support the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of Moldova.

The resolution supports the Strategic Dialogue between the United States and Moldova as a means to strengthen their relations and enhance the reforms already being undertaken by Moldova.

The resolution reaffirms the importance of free, fair, and transparent elections in Moldova.

The resolution affirms Moldova's right to determine its own partnerships and its right to associate with the European Union or any regional organization.

The resolution calls upon the government of Russia to

  • fulfill its commitments made at the Istanbul summit of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in 1999,
  • withdraw its military forces and munitions from Moldova,
  • refrain from issuing economic threats or exerting pressure against Moldova, and
  • cease any and all actions that support separatist movements within Moldova.

The resolution supports efforts to resolve the Transnistria conflict through a comprehensive settlement that secures Moldova's sovereignty and territorial integrity, while providing a special status for the Transnistrian region within Moldova.

Finally, this resolution affirms that lasting stability and security in Moldova is a key priority for the United States and can only be achieved if the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Moldova and all other European countries are respected.
