The parliament will create a special commission in charge of the dialogue with the Transnistrian authorities, Moldovan Parliament Speaker Marian Lupu made the announcement at the end of the today's plenary session held behind closed doors.

Lupu noted that hearings on the Transnistrian issue have not been held for over ten years. Thus, the lawmakers ruled that a debate on the matter with the participation of representatives of all the institutions engaged in the Transnistrian settlement be held at all the parliament's sessions.

"The special commission due to be set up will ensure the permanent dialogue with the representatives of breakaway republic's authorities. This idea was also welcomed by the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Jean-Claude Mignon," Lupu said.

The leader of the parliamentary faction of the Liberal Democratic Party, Valeriu Strelet described the today's meeting as necessary and fruitful, noting that the participants outlined the main achievements and challenges on the matter. "The parliamentary faction of the Liberal Democratic Party ascertained that after a long-lasting stagnation, certain steps have been made. These accomplishments should be consolidated. Yet, we do not labor under the delusion that this conflict will be solved soon," Strelet said.

A lawmaker of the junior coalition partner Liberal Party, Corina Fusu, said that the hearings were opportune and should be organized from time to time, so that the MPs be familiarized with the current situation on the left bank of the Dniester river.

Non-affiliated MP Mihai Godea, who insisted on the organization of a closed parliamentary meeting focused on the Transnistrian issue, said that the today's session had not brought about any significant results.
