CHISINAU, August 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moldovan government has taken unprecedented security measures ahead of the August 22 visit of German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel to Chisinau.

“Every measure is being taken to ensure the security of the high-ranking guest. About 2,000 policemen will be ensuring law and order in the city on that day,” Moldovan Interior Minister Dorin Recean told reporters on Friday. Dozens of Moldovan and German security service agents will protect the German chancellor and snipers will take positions on tall buildings. All the sewer wells have been welded along the route of the Merkel motorcade.

Vehicular traffic in Moldova will be rerouted the day before the visit, Recean said. Hence, Moldovan citizens are asked to use public transport or to choose bypasses in order not to enter the city center.
