The Chisinau authorities are ready to handle stormy relationship with Russia after the Rogozin incident. It is the statement of the President of Parliament, Andrian Candu, made in an interview with the Ukrainian press.
The head of the legislature said that the government had repeatedly warned the Kremlin against events on the left Dniester River, however, Moscow expressed a defiant attitude.
Candu claimed to respect its foreign partners, and this must be mutual relations.
The Moscow authorities are accused of being behind the return trip of Russian Deputy PM Dmitri Rogozin. In an interview with Radio Free Europe, political analyst Anneli Ute Gabanyi said Moldova diplomatically avoided this, but the Kremlin deliberately insisted, regardless of consequence.
"Mr. Rogozin acted as a provocative agent. The incident could be avoided as the Chisinau authorities tried to solve the problem by diplomatic means, to speak calmly in front of the international audience", said political analyst Anneliute Gabanyi.
Gabanyi mentioned that Moldova opposed a courageous resistance even if the Kremlin authorities wanted to impose their vision on the settlement of the Transnistrian conflict.
Moldova declared Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin persona non grata three days ago. The decision was taken by the Government at the request of the Foreign Ministry.
Last week, the Russian Deputy Prime Minister was to arrive in Tiraspol, but his plan was forced to turn back to Moscow due to Bucharest airspace ban.
