CHISINAU, December 5. /TASS/. The leadership of the Socialist Party of Moldova that scored the majority of votes at the country’s parliamentary elections will actively expand contacts with Russia, the party leader Igor Dodon told TASS on Friday.

He said the party would insist on immediate normalization of relations with Russia that were spoiled by Moldova’s conclusion of the Association Agreement with the EU.

“Moldova’s new government that will form the elected parliament must do everything possible to restore friendly relations with our main strategic partner. Because our republic has a future only alongside the strong Russia,” Dodon said.

The Socialist Party leader said relations between Chisinau and Moscow worsened after the Moldovan government signed the Association Agreement with the EU, without consulting its “main economic partner — Russia.” He said Belarus, Azerbaijan and Armenia had refused to sign this document.

“Ukraine was plunged into a civil war and delayed the enforcement of this agreement. And Moldova had to face grave problems with exports of its products to its main market — Russia — that introduced restrictions to prevent the penetration of products from the EU. This brought our economy to the brink of a catastrophe,” Dodon said.
