MOSCOW, April 8. /TASS/. Moscow hopes those forces in Moldova that stand for dialogue with Russia will play a bigger role in the policy of that country, Russian State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said in an interview with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily published in its Wednesday issue.
"We hailed the victory of those forces in present-day Moldova that stand for friendly relations with Russia," he said, commenting on the results of elections in Moldova’s Gagauz autonomy. "We hope politicians, who are against Moldova’s losing its sovereignty and merging into Romania, who are not going to rush headlong into military political blocs and have a realistic view of the world, will play a bigger role in Moldovan politics."
"It will promote a more active cooperation with Chisinau," he underscored. "We want to develop interstate relations with Moldova."
