President Voronin excludes possibility of unification with Romania

Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin said on 22 November that Moldova has no intention of unifying with Romania. Speaking on the state television, Voronin also dismissed a statement made by his Romanian counterpart Traian Basescu according to which Romania and Moldova are two sovereign states of one and the same people: the Romanians. "The results of the latest population census (2004) in Moldova show that 94 percent of the country's indigenous residents regard themselves as Moldovans, and not as Romanians" - Voronin said. On the same occasion, Voronin stressed that the conflict with the breakaway Transdniester region should be settled according to Moldovan law.
