On 3 March Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili made a visit to Moldova where he had talks with his Moldovan counterpart Vladimir Voronin. Among others, the two heads of state signed a joint declaration against separatism.
Commenting on the visit, opposition Democratic Moldova Bloc (BMD) Chairman Serafim Urecheanu who had no opportunity to meet with the Georgian President, said that, of his own will or not, Saakashvili was "used by the Communists for their election propaganda".
Opposition Popular Party Christian Democratic (PPCD) Deputy Chairman Vlad Cubreacov said that Saakashvili's visit should not be seen in the context of the 6 March parliamentary elections. During his visit, Saakashvili had met with PPCD Chairman Iurie Rosca.
