Romania does not want to see the Republic of Moldova abandoned together with Ukraine and its perspectives to join the Union to be even slimmer, Romanian President Traian Basescu declared on Thursday after greeting Moldovan PM Zinaida Greceanii.

Romania's goal is to help Moldova catch the Western train and if it will be abandoned it will have even slimmer chances, Basescu added, quoted by news agency NewsIn. Greceanii is in its first official visit to Bucharest as PM.
