The Guardian: Moldova PM Pavel Filip rules out reunification with Romania

Moldova’s government has ruled out reunification with Romania despite a surge in demands for the two countries to unite.

The Prime Minister, Pavel Filip, said Moldova’s place was as a sovereign state, independent of Romania. “Too much has been said about reunification, identity, language and I want to look at the concrete development of the country,” he told the Guardian.

“All those problems that are sentiment related should be left for better times.”

Filip predicted: “We will be together with Romania in the EU.”

The prime minister said relations with Romania were at a “historic high”, but warned outside players from interfering. “We have countries pumping up this [nationalist] feeling and fostering this division,” he said, specifying Russia and Romania. “And we don’t want to be caught up in this game.”
