CHISINAU, July 5 /TASS/. A working group that will draw up a "road map" of joint actions designed to restore economic relations between Russia and Moldova will meet late in July, Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said after negotiations with the Moldovan leadership.
"As for our bilateral relations, it is vitally important that we have agreed to do ‘the homework’ called a roadmap. We have agreed that senior officials will be at the helm of our working group, which is getting down to joint work late in July. [Russia’s] First Deputy Minister of Economic Development Mr [Alexey] Likhachev will represent the Russian side," Rogozin stressed.
He said it was vitally important for both sides that the people who would be involved in that work were absolutely qualified to resolve all the issues in their competence. The vice-premier said that the first stage of work was due to be over in September. After that, the sides will meet again to discuss the interim results, Rogozin said.
"We handed over our ideas and proposals to the Moldovan government a week ago. We understand that this document will look a bit different after the Moldovan side makes its additions and amendments to it. It is natural," the Russian vice-premier stressed.
