CHISINAU, June 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The association agreement Moldova has signed with the European Union take no account of Moldova’s interests in the east, Moldova’s former President and leader of the country’s biggest Party of Communists, Vladimir Voronin, said on Friday.

“The association agreement signed between Moldova and the European Union does not take due account of our interests in the east. We should not lose our partners and limit our development possibilities,” he said. “The agreement provides for obligations and restrictions only for Moldova. The republic will not be able to make any amendments to the agreement within the next three years. It means that is case the agreement’s provision turn out to be unrealizable, Moldova will be actually brought down to its knees before the European Union.”

Communists have already said they would not vote in parliament for the agreement’s ratification on grounds that no public hearings in parliament or consultations with civil society had preceded its signing. A number of other parliamentary parties, including the Socialists, also spoke against this agreement. Moreover, the Socialists said on Friday they were launching protest actions demanding a nationwide referendum on that matter.
