CHISINAU, Moldova – A Moldovan government official says work on a pipeline that will transport natural gas from Romania to the Moldovan capital will begin next year.
The pipeline, which is expected to become operational in May 2018, will help lessen the former Soviet republic's dependency on Russia. It is an extension of one running from the northern Romanian city of Iasi to Ungheni, a Moldovan town near the Romanian border.
