Basescu refuses to comment on his idea of Romania-Moldova unification

EurActiv asked the Romanian president in Vilnius to comment on his idea of Romania’s unification with Moldova. He replied with a big laugh. The question came after Basescu said that the next big project for Romania after its EU accession should be the unification with Moldova, raising eyebrows in EU circles and providing an opportunity to his political rival and prime minister, Victor Ponta, of accusing him of destabilising the small Eastern European country by siding with the pro-Russian communists in Chisinau.
