CHISINAU, November 22. /TASS/. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Moldova early next year, Moldova’s President-elect Igor Dodon said on Monday.
"Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called me today and congratulated me on my victory at the presidential elections. I invited him to visit Moldova. He accepted my invitation and promised to pay a visit in the first months of 2017," Dodon told TASS.
He said that Turkey is one of his country’s most important strategic partners. "Along with Turkey, we are interested in the development of the Gagauz autonomy," he said, adding that he enrolled support of 99% of Gagauz voters.
Last week, Moldova’s Central Election Commission endorsed the official results of runoff presidential polls of November 13. The leader of the Moldovan Party of Socialists, Igor Dodon, was elected president having scored 52.18% of votes. His rival, Maia Sandu, a single candidate of pro-European forces, won 47.82% of votes. International and local observers recognized the elections’ legitimacy and a number of foreign leaders have already congratulated the winner.
