Traian Basescu supported the necessity of the union of the two countries in the future. “In my heart, I would have liked Romania and Moldova to unite, because I do not walk back on the theory that we are one people living in two independent states,” Basescu noted.
The Romanian head of state acknowledged that there are no necessary conditions for the union yet.
“When a majority of Romanians in both countries want to be one country, that will certainly happen,” Basescu said.Earlier, the Romanian President made a number of shocking statements. Traian Băsescu said once that in 2014 Romanian authorities had to declare publicly Moldova Romanian land. He considers the reunion of these two nations Romania's third national project after joining NATO and the European Union.
This statement drew a lot of criticism in Chisinau. Moldovan Prime Minister Iurie Leanca said that such statements of public officials only undermine the political situation and do more harm than good.
Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta, the most favorite candidate on the upcoming presidential elections in November, according to the polls, also stated his intentions to promote the two countries' reunion project.
He thinks that the reunion might happen in 2018, a century after the annexation of Bessarabia by Romania. Ponta said that he actually would like this to happen in 2018, under his watch, as he is likely to be the President of Romania then.
