Moldova was not going to apply to join Nato, the country’s interim president Mihai Ghimpu said, according to a report by Russian Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper quoted by Bulgarian news agency Focus on January 28 2010.

According to Ghimpu, Moldova’s current priorities were the fight against poverty, and the country’s European Union integration.

Should the question of joining Nato arise in future, it was the Moldovan people who would have the final word, Ghimpu said.

Ghimpu made the comment at a joint news conference with Romanian president Traian Băsescu, who arrived on a two-day visit to Moldova on January 27 2010.

The new Moldovan authorities had no plans to unite with Romania, quit the Commonwealth of Independent States or join Nato, Ghimpu said in an interview with Romanian television channel Pro TV, as quoted by Itar-Tass.

„One has to accept the idea that although we’re brothers, these are two separate countries, and it is up to the leadership of each to decide what it should do for the good of the citizens,” he said.
