CHISINAU, September 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Hundreds of protesters rallied in Moldova's capital Chisinau against the country's rapprochement with NATO on Thursday as the North-Atlantic alliance's summit opened in Wales.
The demonstrators who gathered near the US embassy and NATO office in Chisinau condemned their intervention in other countries' internal affairs.
"Our defense minister has to do nothing at the summit of the North Atlantic alliance. This organization brought nothing but evil to Yugoslavia and Syria and we do not want to be part of it," said Ion Cheban, a member of the Moldovan parliament.
According to the Moldovan authorities, the country's neautral status does not prevent it from cooperation with NATO under an individual partnership plan, which allows Moldovan servicemen to take part in the alliance's peacekeeping operations.
Opinion polls indicate that only 14% of Moldovan citizens want their country to join NATO, while 52% are in favor of neutrality.
