According to Pronitsky, at his talks with the Russian top the Moldovan President will focus on political issues. The sides will also consider prospects for signing a fundamental treaty between Russia and Moldova. Neither will the upcoming Russo-Moldovan negotiations leave out the problem of energy supplies to Moldova.
