TVR’s return to R. of Moldova, a symbolic moment

Moldovan wine producers will talk with Romanian retailers, secretary of state for strategic affairs Bogdan Aurescu stated.

The Romanian Public Television’s (TVR) return to the Republic of Moldova represents a historic moment, a return home, secretary of state for strategic affairs Bogdan Aurescu stated during a press conference at the Foreign Affairs Ministry. The signing of the agreement that allows the reopening of TVR’s studio in Chisinau took place yesterday afternoon at the TVR headquarters.
“This return has several meanings. It is, first of all, a moment awaited by Moldovan citizens, the connecting of the Moldovan audience to Romanian realities, and a European agenda for them. Thus, the signing of this agreement puts an end to the lawsuit at the European Court,” he added. Likewise, another aspect the secretary of state pointed out has to do with the return of the ‘Moldova1’ television channel in Romania, representing, from this point of view, an important element for a better knowledge of realities in Moldova. In his turn, Moldovan Deputy Foreign and European Integration Minister Valeriu Chiveri pointed out at the press conference that his country needs TVR and this should happen in the shortest of time after the signing of the agreement.
Concerning the restrictions placed on Moldovan wine exports to Russia, Bogdan Aurescu stated that Romania unreservedly shares the Moldovan side’s bewilderment and hopes that the situation will be resolved as fast as possible, bearing in mind that Moldovan wines have passed the sanitary tests conducted by European bodies and can be bought in numerous EU countries.
“We want to support through concrete actions the solving of this situation; thus, meetings between Moldovan wine producers and Romanian retailers will take place as soon as possible, in an attempt to hike exports on the Romanian market, following the Russian Federation’s embargo,” he added.
Valeriu Chiveri expressed his “high appreciation” for the “Romanian authorities’ prompt reaction” in this issue. “It’s an amazing reaction of solidarity, which was presented openly, trenchantly, it was a call to consolidating solidarity from other European partners, something that already happened yesterday during the Polish Foreign Minister’s visit to Bucharest, today during Premier Ponta’s meeting with EU ambassadors to Bucharest. We appreciate this support very much, we feel we are not alone, we feel we are stronger together,” Chiveri stated.
Among other things, the conference touched upon the Iasi-Ungheni natural gas pipeline that will be inaugurated in the shortest of time, and also upon the issue of the three electrical grid interlink lines that are expected to be implemented by the end of 2013.
