Conflict escalates between Moldova and Romania

A long-running conflict between neighboring countries Romania and Moldova has escalated. Moldova has expelled two Romanian diplomats and recalled its own ambassador.
Romania calls the measure is “totally unjustified”. Moldova's action is in response to comments by the Romanian ambassador to Moldova, who said the border between the two countries is not legally valid.

Until 1991 Moldova was part of the Soviet Union, but in the years before the Second World War most of it's territory was in Romania. Moldova accuses its neighbor of undermining its sovereignty, by offering its 4 million inhabitants citizenship. (radionetherlands)
