RFE/RL's Moldovan Service says Lupu stressed five major points at his press conference this morning, and said he was seeking to form "a large coalition for democratic governance."
- the importance of dialogue with the Communist Party
- the advantage of Moldova remaining in the CIS
- questions surrounding the conditions of Russia's offer of a $500 million loan
- support for Moldova's neutrality
- the benefit of "keeping our strategic partnership with our partners to the east"
