CHISINAU, May 06, /ITAR-TASS/. NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vreshbow will arrive on a two-day visit to Moldova, the press service of the Moldovan foreign ministry said on Tuesday.
Vershbow’s programme includes talks with the Moldovan leaders and a meeting with students.
Under the constitution, Moldova is a neutral, off-bloc state but this constitutional provision is no obstacle to develop cooperation with the North Atlantic Alliance on the basis of an individual partnership plan, which provides for participation of Moldovan servicemen in NATO peacekeeping operations.
In one of his interviews last week, Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti expressed concern over the developments in Ukraine and said that membership in NATO “would help Moldova ensure better security.” The Moldovan opposition voiced criticism at this idea. Moreover, it enjoys no support from the majority of Moldova’s residents.
According to a public opinion poll published by the Public Opinion Barometer polling organization in April, only 14% of Moldovans thought that NATO membership would be the best solution to ensure the country’s security, while 52% spoke in favour of neutrality and 12% thought it would be better to join the Collective Security Treaty Organizations (CSTO).
