Moldovan PM rejects president’s criticism on border treaty

The premier of the Republic of Moldova, Vlad Filat described as “electoral” the statements made by Moldovan President Mihai Ghimpu, who considers the Border Treaty with Romania as non-constitutional, according to the ‘Moldova Azi’ web portal.

Filat said the signing of the Border Treaty was announced in an “essentially European” context, and suggested “political actors” to be careful with the impact of their electoral campaign statements. “I thought that, if we are in an electoral campaign that is by no means easy, the statements regarding the interest of the country should be well considered, especially if those who make them hold high positions in the state,” Vlad Filat said. “The Treaty on the border regime between Romania and the Republic of Moldova was signed in an essentially European context and the announcement about the signing of this treaty was made by the president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso. This should have proved those who say such things that this document has been drafted in line with European standards and legal criteria,” Premier Vlad Filat added.

He appealed to politicians “to continue their electoral activity, “but be careful with the impact of their political statements.”

“If anyone honestly considers that some things are wrong, then he must use the available instruments and take the case to the state institutions in charge with settling such disputes, also with regard to constitutional and non-constitutional aspects,” Filat added. The interim president of Moldova, Mihai Ghimpu recently said the Treaty between Romania and Moldova is non-constitutional, because “treaties between states are signed by presidents,” he explained.
