On September 11, Filat will have talks with Medvedev “on a wide range of Russian-Moldovan relations”. Special attention will be paid “to the expansion of mutually advantageous cooperation in the trade, economic, scientific, technical, cultural, humanitarian and other fields”. Several documents are planning to be signed, the Russian government’s press service said.
