    Abstract

    After the 2004 parliamentary and presidential elections in Romania, relations between Romania and the Republic of Moldova improved markedly. As soon as the new administration took office, bilateral relations with Moldova were placed high on the Romanian foreign policy agenda and the destination of the new Romanian President’s first official visit abroad was Moldova, in January 2005. This improvement was also made possible by the newfound consensus amongst the political class in Chisinau regarding Moldova’s integration with the EU as the country’s main strategic foreign policy goal, which culminated in the signature of the EU-Moldova Action Plan in the framework of the EU’s Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) in February 2005. The Party of Moldovan Communists, led by the Moldovan President, Vladimir Voronin, subsequently won the parliamentary elections in March 2005 on a pro-European platform.
