Moldovan Presidential Hopeful Vows to Scrap EU Association Deal
CHISINAU (Sputnik) — The economic relations between Moscow and Chisinau deteriorated in summer 2014 after the Moldovan parliament ratified the Association Agreement with the European Union. Russia imposed provisional ban on some Moldovan imports over concerns that free flow of the EU goods would spill to the Russian market in reexport.

"Our stance remains firm. We want new and normal relations with Russia given the fact that we signed the Association Agreement with the European Union," Filip stated at a Cabinet meeting.

Filip added that he discussed bilateral economic relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and would raise the issue during the visit of Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin to Moldova.

"In particular, we will work on the action plan we had discussed, and we will try to remove restrictions in our relations," Filip specified.
