ST. PETERSBURG, March 27. /TASS/. The presidential election in Moldova has shown that citizens of that county support the policy aimed at rapprochement with Russia, Zinaida Greceanii, head of the Party of Socialists’ faction in parliament said at a meeting with speaker of Russia’s State Duma (lower house of parliament), Vyacheslav Volodin, on the sidelines of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).
"I will always repeat that no one will be able to break the centuries-old mutual relations between Russia and Moldova. This must be preserved for the people. The presidential election has shown precisely this, that the people support this policy aimed at rapprochement with Russia," Greceanii said.
She voiced regret over the fact that the Moldovan government decided against sending an official delegation to the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly. The politician stressed though that the socialists’ faction made a unanimous decision to go there and take part in the events.
For his part, Volodin described the decision not to take part in the assembly destructive, including for the Moldovan parliament itself, "because people favor friendship, dialogue, conversation, development of economic ties, stronger partnership, because people want to live in peace, they want the lawmakers’ activities to yield specific results."
The speaker emphasized that relations with Moldova are very important for Russia. "Our heads of state made many decisions, they should be legislated. We need to create an effective legal framework. Those opposing the agreements that presently mean so much for Moldova as well, considering that these are the economic development issues, are just not thinking about their country," Volodin noted.
