The ministry of foreign affairs of the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldovan republic (PMR) has organized a string of seminars for Transnistrian diplomats, who had upgraded their qualifications at the central Administration of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The seminar participants listened to the reports of their colleagues, who spoke about the knowledge acquired during their practical training. Anastasia Filimonova, representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said that the training served as a very good opportunity for establishing ties between the Russian and Transnistrian foreign ministries. It also allowed participants exchange experience and information on the main fields of international activity.
Dmitry Palamarchuk, another Russian ministry specialist, said that on the sidelines of the visit, he had several meetings focused on the main fields of interests, in particular “on the prospects of Eurasian integration of the Transnistrian republic.”
A new round of practical training for Transnistrian diplomats is scheduled for September. About 90 Transnistrian public servants will attend career development courses in Russia’s central universities. An agreement on the matter was reached during the visit to Tiraspol of Larisa Efremova, the deputy head of department for international cooperation of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
