CHISINAU, December 20. /TASS/. President Igor Dodon of Moldova will make efforts to restore full-scale relations with Russia after a chain of demonstrative steps on the part of Moldovan government and parliament. He twittered it on Wednesday after a meeting with Russian Ambassador Farit Mukhametshin.
"We stated our mutual concern over the worsening of diplomatic relations as a result of actions undertaken by the parliamentary majority this year in order to sow discord between our countries and to break off all relations with Russia," Dodon wrote. "I am sure there is a possibility to refrain from complicating relations between our countries further and to change over to full-fledged cooperation."
He said Ambassador Mukhametshin and he had discussed his participation in an informal meeting of the Council of CIS Heads of State, scheduled for December 26 in Moscow.
Earlier this week, Dodon leveled sharp criticism at the Moldovan government’s decision to call off Moldovan Ambassador to Russia Andrei Neguta. He said standing behind the motion was the Democratic Party of Moldova, which had interest in the worsening of relations with Russia and the fastening of ties with the EU and the U.S.
