Moldovan President Igor Dodon has invited Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to Chisinau, offering Romanian Ambassador Daniel Ionita an official letter in this sense. Dodon says that “responsible and constructive communication must be knit together between the Heads of State of Romania and the Republic of Moldova” and that he stakes on the fact that the Romanian President is open to accepting dialogue in Chisinau.
Igor Dodon wrote on Facebook that he received Romanian Ambassador to the Republic of Moldova Daniel Ionita on Monday, with whom he had “friendly and productive discussions on the need for balanced and mutually advantageous collaboration between our states, both in the economic and the cultural field.”
“I assured the ambassador of the fact that Moldo-Romanian relations are and will remain fundamental for the Republic of Moldova, in virtue of our neighbourliness, of common historical events and of the cultural affinities we have always had. We are two independent and sovereign states that must find new opportunities for cooperation that is respectful and beneficial for citizens,” the President of the Republic of Moldova states.
He adds that “an important basis” of his meeting with the Romanian ambassador was to hand him an official letter addressed to President Klaus Iohannis, inviting the latter to pay a visit to the Republic of Moldova.
“I consider that responsible and constructive communication must be knit together between the Heads of State of Romania and of the Republic of Moldova. I have all conviction that the asperities and difficulties that appear sometime in the relations between states or institutions can be overcome only through repeated discussions, and I stake on the fact that the President of Romania is open to accepting a dialogue in Chisinau, at any time that suits him,” Igor Dodon adds.
Since the start of his term as President of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Dodon has had several meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and has made several harsh statements about Romania.
