The main objective of the research is to investigate historical and political phenomena of the contemporary Moldovan diplomacy formation and development.

The first chapter deals with theoretical-methodological analysis of diplomatic activity concepts as foreign policy systems in the context of federal and integration theories. It provides a brief examination of the basic components of diplomatic activity. It also discusses the specific features of the integration processes within the framework of the European Union, contrasted to similar processes in the former Soviet Union.

The second chapter provides an examination of the stages of the formation process and development of MSSR diplomatic missions within the USSR framework; the prerogatives and the status of the MFA at the state level are pinpointed, the causes that formally and actually excluded the possibility to perform MSSR’s own independent foreign policy are outlined.

For the first time in historiography, the activity of Moldova’s Permanent Representative at Moscow, its important role in acquiring experience to conduct negotiations and to establish mutual relations among Moldova and other Union Republics are highlighted The third chapter, consecrated to the national diplomacy institutionalizing process, brings to light preconditions and consequences of the very process. The international recognition of the Republic of Moldova and the necessity to put into practice an independent foreign policy conditioned the qualitative transformations of diplomatic missions, especially, its central body – the Ministry of Foreign affairs, and opening of diplomatic missions as subjects of international law. It also emphasizes the great impact of the adoption of the Law on Diplomatic Missions, becoming an important step in Moldovan diplomatic mission development.

The fourth chapter is an investigation of Moldova’s mutual relations with Russian Federation and of the negotiations on signing the Basic Political Treaty with Romania. The author also analyses the processes of collaboration with and integration of the Republic of Moldova in international organization system.

The present research work underlines the great role of national diplomacy in the process of asserting the constitutional status of the Republic of Moldova on international arena.
