MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Economic relations between Russia and Moldova stand in need of readjustment in the wake of implementing the Association Agreement (AA) which Moldova has signed with the EU, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Wednesday upon the end of consultations with his Moldovan counterpart Valeriu Chiveri.
“The two diplomats exchanged opinions on a wide range of pressing issues of bilateral relations in a broad variety of spheres,” he said. “Along with it, they stressed the importance of deepening collaboration between the Russian and Moldovan Foreign Ministries.”
As a separate item, Karassin and Chiveri discussed negotiations on the peace settlement process in Moldova’s much-troubled region of Transdniestria that has been seeking independence from the early 1990’s.
The two diplomats stressed the importance of regular contacts between the Russian and Moldovan Foreign Ministers.
