Diplomatic confusion

From today's Washington Times, "Embassy Row" section:

Foreign Visitors in Washington this Week

Iulian Fota, national security adviser to President Traian Basescu of Moldova, who addresses the German Marshall Fund of the United States on "realities and repercussions of unrest in Moldova."

A couple of observations:
Traian Basescu is the president of Romania. The president of Moldova is Vladimir Voronin. According - at least -to the UN, Republic of Moldova and Romania are two different countries.
