    Moldovan Ambassador to Russia said that none of the documents signed in the framework of cooperation between Moldova and NATO envision the country becoming a member of the alliance.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) None of the documents signed in the framework of cooperation between Moldova and NATO envision the country becoming a member of the alliance, Moldovan Ambassador to Russia Dumitru Braghis told Sputnik.

    "Despite the fact that the issue of Moldova's cooperation with NATO is a strictly internal matter, it sometimes becomes a conversation topic with our colleagues from Russia, and not only. It is well known that in accordance with the constitution, the Republic of Moldova is a neutral state, thus, based on the current legislation, it is clear that Moldova cannot join any military bloc, and I think Russian colleagues are well aware of this," Braghis said.

    "Not a single document of those signed in the framework of our cooperation [with NATO] envisions the Republic of Moldova joining the North Atlantic alliance," the ambassador underlined.
