CHISINAU, July 5. /TASS/. Russia is interested in expanding contacts between Chisinau and Tiraspol, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
"We are interested in intensifying contacts between Chisinau and Tiraspol on restoring normal relations, first of all in economy," Rogozin said at talks in the extended format with participation of Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Octavian Calmic.
Rogozin noted that he plans to visit Transdniestria after talks in Moldova. "We will hold meetings there, meet with people. They have elections ahead. Tomorrow (on Wednesday) we will return to Chisinau and exchange opinions and conclusions on the whole program that we had," he added.
Talking about the next two days, Rogozin said that the Russian delegation will "mainly focus on, as discussed before, preparing a plan of joint actions," on creating a roadmap.
"We have handed the plan of joint work not so long ago, around a week ago. As far as I understand, you are already ready to put forward your own proposals and clarifications. I would in fact propose to focus on the work of our colleagues from ministries and departments on that matter, in order to make decisions after discussions and prepare draft resolutions that will be approved by the heads of state," the Russian official continued.
Rogozin expressed hope that by the end of this year, a session of the Russian-Moldovan inter-governmental commission on economic and trade cooperation will be held, and "we will be able to talk about a new quality of our relations, which we have long ago really missed."
