CHISINAU, February 4 /TASS/. Moldova’s new government wants to cooperate with Russia, Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip said at a meeting with Russian Ambassador Farit Mukhametshin on Thursday.
"In view of traditional friendly ties between the two states and given that a huge number of Moldovan residents reside in Russia, our country wants to develop constructive cooperation with partners from Russia," the cabinet of ministers’ press service quoted Filip as saying.
For his part, Mukhametshin called for increasing reciprocal trade and investment cooperation between the two countries; deepening socio-political dialogue and expanding interaction in the humanitarian sphere. The sides stressed the need to resume the work of an Inter-Governmental Commission for economic cooperation as soon as possible. The commission’s last meeting took place in November 2012.
Earlier, Moldova suggested holding such a meeting in the next few months.
The agenda of the next meeting of the Russian-Moldovan Inter-Governmental Commission will be a topic for discussion at a session of the CIS Economic Council in Moscow on March 18. Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin, the Russian president’s envoy for the Dniester settlement, has co-chaired the commission from the Russian side since 2012. Moldova’s new government has not appointed its co-chairman yet. Moldova’s Vice-Premier and Minister of Economy Octavian Kalmyk is the most likely candidate for the post.
