Renita, 52, is a journalist by trade and a graduate of the postgraduate National School of Political and Administrative Sciences of Bucharest. He worked for many years with the Moldova’s Foreign Ministry, once being adviser to the foreign minister. He also served with the OSCE Mission in Croatia and he is currently working at the British American Tobacco Moldova company.
Renita has recently told that he will strictly follow the programme of the Moldova Government to build a special and privileged relation with Romania. He said that the openness of late in the relations between Moldova and Romania will be fully capitalised on and one of the dimensions to be followed is the promotion of Moldova’s European integration bid through Romania.
Moldova recalled its ambassador form Bucharest on April 8, 2009, when then ambassador Lidia Gutu was recalled amidst street protests against the communist regime, which blamed the street unrest on Romania. Also back then, Moldova declared Romania’s ambassador to Chisinau Filip Teodorescu persona non grata. The new Romanian ambassador in Moldova, Marius Lazurca, presented his letters of credence on March 30, 2010.
