The barbed wire fence at Republic of Moldova's border with Romania will be taken down. The PM from Chisinau, Vlad Filat, signed on January 9 the disposition for the barbed wire fence at the Romanian border to be taken down. The document will be addressed to the Border Services and, if necessary, to local public administration authorities, Unimedia informs.

According to the disposition, the work volume and the resources needed will be established by the end of January. The special services will have to fulfil the plan and take down the fence in February and March.

Vlad Filat considers that keeping the fence up at the border with a "friend state" in the 21st century, when all European borders are transparent and people can travel freely would be "shameful".

Two years ago, the Ungheni rayon members elaborated a plan for developing surveillance at the borders. The proposal entailed getting rid of the barbed wire fence. The plan was approved by the Romanian authorities, but rejected by the ex-communist governance in Chisinau.

The Romanian-Moldavian agreement on small traffic at the borders awaits the senators' vote

Senators in Bucharest will meet on Thursday morning to debate the Romanian-Moldavian Agreement ratification Law project focusing on small traffic at borders, Romanian news agency Mediafax informs. The session is scheduled to take place between 9 and 9:30 am, when the senators will debate and vote on the issue.

According to the Agreement, citizens who have been residing legally for at least a year at the common border region will be allowed to enter and live the border area of the neighbouring country for a period of three uninterrupted months. This will be possible with a valid passport and a small traffic permit, which will be valid for two to five years.

The treaty was signed on November 13 2009, when Moldavian PM Vlad Filat paid an official visit to Bucharest. The law project was unanimously adopted by the Deputies' Chamber on January 11, 2010.
