CHISINAU, March 21 (Itar-Tass) — Moldova’s newly elected president Nicolae Timofti has called for maintaining traditionally friendly relations with Russia.
“We should maintain our traditional, economic and friendly relations,” he said in an interview with Moldova’s Timpul newspaper published on Wednesday.
The new head of state who will be sworn in on March 23 denied mass media reports saying that he is “the anti-Russian president.”
“I have nothing against the Russian nation. On the contrary, I admire it and its culture,” Timofti said.
At the same time the Moldovan leader noted that “the existing problems between the two countries should be resolved from the point of view of equality and within the framework of the dialogue, even if we have different influence as concerns big politics.”
Timofi said he would do his utmost for Moldova to be perceived in the world as “the country that can protect its interests.”
Speaking about the Dniester region conflict settlement he underlined that the conflict “should be resolved within the framework of international documents and Russian-Moldovan agreements.”
