There was an agreement between Turkey and Moldavia regarding the acceleration of contacts in order to form a strategic partnership and a free trade agreement, according to Abdullah Gül’s statement at a joint press conference following a meeting with his Moldovan counterpart Nicolae Timofti on Wednesday 18.

“We agreed to finalize talks on a free trade agreement and arrangements on forming a strategic partnership,” Gül said.

Ankara aims to double the current trade volume, of $500 million between the two countries to $1 billion.

The course to be taken then should be for the two countries to take steps to ease investment conditions in both countries, Nicolae Timofti said, stressing the importance of an swift agreement.
