Moldova counts on Romania’s support in integration with European Union

The Moldovan government expects an improvement in the relations with the European Union, counting on the support of Romania, which will be holding EU presidency next year.

“The role of the president of the EU Council implies impartial and professional management of the issues on the agenda – from the simplest issues to the most complex ones,” said Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila.

According to Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration of Moldova Iurie Leanca, “this is a unique opportunity to intensify relations, from deepening political dialogue and supporting the process of reforms to accelerating the implementation of projects for energy and infrastructure connection through constructing bridges and highways”.

“We count on the support of Bucharest in organizing broader debates in the EU on the need to offer the Republic of Moldova a clear perspective of joining the European Union,” Leanca said.

We cannot speak about Moldova’s accession to the European Union in the coming six months, said Pavel Midrigan, Dean of the Faculty of International Relations at the University of European Political and Economic Studies named after Constantin Stere.

The expert noted that the countries that expect accession to the European Union are still far away from the requirements put forward to them.

“Instead of striving to get into the EU, Moldovan authorities need to work in such a way that would make the European Union invite our country to join this union,” Pavel Midrigan concluded.
