The Parliament of the Republic of Moldova is going to ratify the Border Treaty with Romania on Thursday
The Parliament of the Republic of Moldova is to examine on Thursday the ratification of the Treaty with Romania regarding the state border regime, collaboration and mutual assistance on border issues, signed on 8 November 2010 in Bucharest. According to an agenda presented by the press service of the Kishinev government, on Thursday again, the deputies in the Republic of Moldova will ratify the Agreement between Romania and the Republic of Moldova regarding cooperation in the domain of the military.
The treaty between Romania and the Republic of Moldova regarding the state border regime, collaboration and mutual assistance on issues of the border was signed on 8 November 2010 in Bucharest by the former Romanian minister of foreign affairs Teodor Baconschi and the former premier of the Republic of Moldova Vlad Filat.
The signing of the Treaty provoked a scandal in Kishinev, both on the part of the communist opposition and on the part of some parties in the former Alliance for European Integration. The former interim president Mihai Ghimpu stated that it was signed by Filat with the breach of procedure norms.
The treaty is a technical document, which regulates the modality of making the border delimitation, the solution to the problems referring to joint objectives to be built at the borderline, the maintainance of the borderline, the set up and functionality of mixed commissions for the checking of the route of the state border and the maintainance of the border signals, the use of border waters, railways, roads, as well as other communications installations which cross the border, the development of such activities as fishing, hunting, forestry, the way of checking and resolving matters connected to the breach of border regime, such as the illegal crossing of the borderline or the destruction of border signals.
The intergovernmental agreement with regards to cooperation in the military domain, which includes the judicial frame necessary for military cooperation between the two states was signed on 20 April 2012 in Kishinev. The military cooperation will include domains such as defence planning, management of human resources, military information, medical activities. To apply the agreement is necessary the creation of a joint military commission which should meet annually, according to the document.
Both documents were criticised previously by the communist opposition in Kishinev.
The parliament in Kishinev decided, last week, that they will organise on Thursday hearings with regard to the situation in the Transdniester region but the standing bureau of the parliament did not take any decision.
