Moldova and Ukraine close the issue of the disputed territory near Palanca village

Moldova and Ukraine have closed the issue of the disputed territory near the village of Palanca (Odessa Oblast).

According to Ukrainian media, Moldova’s Ambassador to Ukraine Ion Stăvilă said about this at a meeting of the Advisory Council of the EU Border Assistance Mission to Ukraine and Moldova (EUBAM).

The ambassador said that according to the agreements reached, Moldovan authorities handed over a road section in Palanca to Ukraine. Ukraine was supposed to receive territories in Palanca area in exchange for the ones that it had handed over to Moldova in the Danube’s mouth, near the village of Giurgiuleşti, where Moldova wanted to build a port.

Moldova's Ambassador to Ukraine also announced agreements with the EUBAM to modernize the infrastructure and establish jointly controlled checkpoints in Palanca, Mayaki and Udobne.
