Washington is ready to render assistance to Transnistria, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Bridget Brink, said on Friday.

“I came to hear what problems and challenges you face and how the United States can help,” Brink said during a meeting in Tiraspol with the acting head of foreign affairs of the self-proclaimed republic, Vitaly Ignatyev.

The sides discussed a wide range of issues of mutual concern.

Bridget Brink expressed strong interest in obtaining an “objective” picture of the situation in the unrecognized republic.

A sliver of land in eastern Moldova, Russian-speaking Transnistria, broke away from the Moldovan state in the early 1990s after a brief war.

With the conflict “frozen”, Transnistria remains home to over a 1,000 Russian peacekeeping troops.
