Moldova says EU raises “iron curtain”


Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin said on Thursday the European Union was raising an “iron curtain” against his citizens by allowing them to freely travel in Europe only with Romanian passports. 

“What the European Union is doing to Moldova is not good. To open Europe only for those Moldovan citizens who hold Romanian passports is humiliating for the Moldovan people. They should not insult us and make us travel to Europe via Romania,” he told the national television.

Voronin said last week he met EU High Representative for the Common Foreign Policy and Security Javier Solana and Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek of the Czech Republic that holds rotating presidency in the EU and called on them to resolve the issue of free travel of Moldovan citizens in EU countries.
