Basescu criticised the approach of the early leftist Romanian authorities in early 90s when Romania admitted the independence of Moldovan Republic and withdrew from the negotiations related to the separatist Moldovan Republic of Transnistria. Romania should observe but not officially confirm the border between Romania and Moldova Basescu stressed. In regard to further plans, the Romanian President expressed commitments for supporting Moldova in its plans for European integration.
