Moldova calls off its Ambassador from Russia
The Moldovan Ambassador to Russia Andrei Neguta has been called back for ‘inappropriate statements’. The decision was made public today by the Moldovan Foreign Minister Iurie Leanca during the Governmental session.
“All the ambassadors should know that they have been sent to serve Moldova’s interests and represent our country. No offence to anybody, the same requirement applies for other cases, as well. All should do their job,” said Vlad Filat quoted by Jurnal.MD.
Andrei Neguta previously stated in an interview for Russia’s ITAR-TASS agency that the withdrawal of the Russian troops from Transnistria might put Moldova in danger. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration from Chisinau said that his statements are ‘regrettable’ and do not comply with Moldova’s official position.
The Moldovan Premier Vlad Filat asked the competent bureau to identify a new person to replace the position.
