20 parties have registered in the current election campaign. Many people say it is a too big number for such a small country as Moldova. At the same time, much more parties could take part in the election campaign.

Igor Corman stated for Radio Romania Actualităţi that the ice in the relations between Romania and Moldova is about to melt. „We set out on a path of improvement of relations with Romania. I really liked the pragmatic approach and we think that we have to continue in this direction, the European direction", Corman said.

According to Radio Romania Actualităţi, the legislators decided to resume the works of the inter-parliamentary committee, which was interrupted in 2000, which will convene at least two times per year and agreed that the governments from Chisinau and Bucharest should also convene in joint meetings. The debated subject of the basic treaty, on which the communist government categorically insisted, was also discussed, after Traian Basescu recently stated, in Chisinau, that Romania whishes to sign with the Republic of Moldova a partnership agreement for Europe.

„It is good for such a treaty to have the form of an inter-country document. Of course, the main part of it will refer to the partnership for Europe, so that /.../ but we could extend the partnership to other fields", stated Igor Corman.

According to Corman, cooperation and consulting regarding the European vector is another field in which Romania can provide considerable assistance to Moldova. „It depends very much on the officials from Bucharest, but also on the government from Chisinau, to never again allow the mutual relations between the two state become so cold as they were during the communist government ", concluded Igor Corman.

We have to remind that, in the period 7-10 February, the delegation of the Moldovan Parliament, led by Igor Corman (DP), the president of the Committee on Foreign Policy European Integration, made an official visit to Romania, at the invitation of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Romanian Senate. Members of the delegation were Boris Vieru (PL), Vasile Balan (AMN), Ion Butmalai (PLDM) and Grigore Petrenco (PCRM).
