Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita explained why she had not traveled to Moscow to negotiate a better gas price.
She said that it was not right to make long-term concessions for the sake of a lower short-term price. The position was expressed in Editia Speciala
on Radio Moldova, noi.md notes.
“I call on the opposition, which thinks it can negotiate, to think better of our nation and to do what we can for our people. All visits, all negotiations should be preceded by preparation, and if we did not go to Moscow, it is because we knew that there would be no openness or we would not get the desired result. Besides, the person in charge of this field has to go and get the best commercial results in professional negotiations,” Gavrilita said.
At the same time, the head of the executive noted that those countries that made certain political concessions got better prices.
“We see that those who allow the use of the transport network have achieved better conditions or made certain political concessions.
Everyone knows that we have the Transdniestrian region, I think it is very correct that we insisted on a professional discussion on commercial terms and did not want to sacrifice the long-term interests of the country for a lower short-term price. We need to think about what the country needs in order to become a more sustainable country, it’s not just about us, it’s about our country, our children and their future life. I’m sorry we have lost so many years,” the prime minister stressed.
