Since it currently enjoys economic growth, Romania could go further and invest in the Republic of Moldova, but a control should exist in Chisinau for the money reaaching there for the planned projects, the Romanian Prime Minister told Radio Moldova in an interview quoted by the IPN agency.
The Romanian head of Government emphasized that during his visit to Chisinau on August 27 – when the Republic of Moldova celebrates its Independence Day – he will discuss this topic with his Moldovan counterpart, Valeriu Strelet.
Ponta also said he is happy that in the past couple of years, words turned into facts in the Romanian-Moldovan relations, if only mentioning the construction of the Iasi-Ungheni natural gas pipeline, the revamping of some kindergartens and the donation of minibuses.
He also stated that Romania has not become the Republic of Moldova’s main commercial partner by chance, although “there is a lot of work to do as regards the infrastructure, the reforms.”
Ponta assured in the interview that Romania will continue to support the Republic of Moldova in the modernization and reform process.
“I’m going to say in Chisinau that all that Romania could do in order to help Moldova in complex moments, it will do. We have never let you down in hard times, and it is out of question to ever let you down,” the prime minister emphasized.
