Moscow “is concerned over Prime Minister Victor Ponta’s statements regarding the future of the republic of Moldova he made at a meeting with activists of the Social-Democratic Party in Alba-Iulia on September 14,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary.
“As follows from frank calls by the Romanian presidential candidate for completing a ‘second great unification’ by 2018, certain political quarters in Bucharest are still hatching annexationist plans regarding a sovereign neighbouring country,” the commentary runs.
Russia regards as “irresponsible and unacceptable the external replications of such statements in the context of the ongoing election campaign in the republic of Moldova.”
“We expect that the authorities in Chisinau will assess them properly. We also hope that a corresponding reaction from Brussels and the European capitals will follow,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
