Incumbent President Vladimir Voronin visits Moscow

The Government in Chisinau on Wednesday decided who would be on the R. Moldova’s delegation to go on President Vladimir Voronin’s working visit to Moscow on June 22, about a month prior to the Moldovan parliamentary snap election, Interlic news agency reports, according to Mediafax.

On his visit to Moscow, Voronin will be accompanied by Deputy Prime-Minister Igor Dodon and by Finance Minister Mariana Durlesteanu. According to the above named source, no information is available on the purpose of the visit or possible talks to various Russian officials. The government decision makes no mention of the sum to be allocated for the trip.

Igor Dodon told a press conference on Tuesday that the government was negotiating foreign loans, naming China and Russia among possible creditors. The visit to Moscow may also be an opportunity to discuss a loan from Russia, as well as the participation of Russian investors in infrastructure projects, something both PM Zinaida Greceanii and Igor Dodon have repeatedly noted.

The President of the Democratic Party (PDM), Dumitru Diacov, stated at a press conference that he would cede the leadership of his party as well as the first slots on the list of candidates to Marian Lupu’s team, Info-Prim Neo reports on its website. Lupu has resigned from the Communists’ Party (PCRM) this month.
