                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
  Concerning the removal of military forces of the Russian Federation 
                from the independent nation of Moldova.

Whereas military forces of the Russian Federation continue to be deployed on the 
        territory of the sovereign and independent nation of Moldova against the 
        wishes of the people and government of Moldova;
Whereas the continued stationing of military forces by the Russian Federation in 
        Moldova without permission of the government of Moldova is contrary to 
        international law;
Whereas the Parliamentary Assembly of the Conference on Security and Cooperation 
        in Europe passed a resolution on July 6, 1994, calling for a ``most 
        rapid, continuing, unconditional, and full withdrawal'' of the 14th Army 
        of the Russian Federation from Moldova, and the diplomatic mission in 
        Moldova of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe has 
        called for the accelerated withdrawal of the 14th Army;
Whereas on August 10, 1994, negotiators of the governments of Moldova and the 
        Russian Federation initialed an agreement according to which the Russian 
        Federation will withdraw its military forces from Moldova in 3 years; 
        and
Whereas the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation has called for changes 
        in such withdrawal agreement and the Commander of the 14th Army of the 
        Russian Federation has publicly rejected the terms of the agreement; 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) calls upon the government of the Russian Federation to 
        adhere to the provisions of the agreement initialed on August 
        10, 1994, to provide for the withdrawal of the military forces 
        of the Russian Federation from Moldova; and
            (2) urges the Administration to continue to use every 
        appropriate opportunity, including multilateral and bilateral 
        diplomacy, to secure removal of the military forces of the 
        Russian Federation from Moldova.
