Where We Are
OSCE Mission to Moldova
The Mission’s top priority is to help resolve the Transdniestrian conflict. This dispute is rooted in the conflict that broke out in 1992 between the Transdniestrian authorities and the central government in Chisinau. Violent clashes resulted in several hundred casualties and more than 100,000 displaced persons. A ceasefire was agreed in July 1992 and the parties committed themselves to negotiate a settlement to the conflict. Other activities by the Mission include arms control; human rights issues and the strengthening of the rule of law in Moldova; supporting election processes; and developing a free environment for the media.
