The Moldavian president Alexander Voronin has announced that the Romanian ambassador has been declared a “persona non grata”, and that Moldova will impose visa restrictions with Romania.This comes after Mr. Voronin’s allegations that Romania’s influence in the riots was “very serious”.
The Romanian foreign ministry denied accusations.
This is odd. Moldova cannot unilaterally impose visas on Romanian citizens, and it may be in breach of its agreement on the facilitation of the issuance of visas.
For now the EU presidency and the Commission remain silent.
