Moldova’s cooperation with EU will not affect relations with CIS

MINSK, October 10. /TASS/. Moldova’s cooperation with the European Union will not affect relations with the CIS countries, Moldova’s President Nikolae Timofti told the CIS summit on Friday.

He called on Russia to continue consultations on cancelling waivers from the CIS free trade regime.

“Moldova is interested in keeping and developing relations with its traditional counterparts in the CIS free trade zone,” he said.

“We believe, the free trade zone agreement between Moldova and the European Union should not affect our relations with the CIS countries; as those two economic spaces will only add to each other,” the president said.

If in future Moldova joins the EU, “it will not affect productive cooperation with all CIS countries,” he said.

Moldova’s president regretted Russia had introduced customs duties on Moldovan goods. Supplies to the Russian Federation make over 85% of Moldova’s export.

“We still have not received major reasons (for those actions),” the president said. Those actions are actually pushing Moldova from the CIS free trade zone.
