During the meeting, Klaus Iohannis said that Chisinau officials will have all his support, as well as Romania, in the commitment of the new coalition on the European path.

“I would like to, once more, thank the Romanian authorities and the Romanian citizens for their disinterested support. I am sure that the new milestones fixed today will further contribute to our collaboration. It is the first official bilateral visit after taking office and convincingly reflects the importance and interest that the new government attaches to special and privileged relations with Romania in the strategic partnership for the European integration of the Republic of Moldova,” declared Maia Sandu.

The Chief Executive of Chisinau, who will be accompanied by the Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Năstase on the official visit to Bucharest, will also meet with representatives of Parliament.

Prime Minister Maia Sandu listed the projects he had been able to discuss with the Romanian Government: completion of the construction and putting into full operation of the Iasi-Chisinau gas pipeline, the importance of interconnections of high voltage power lines, and the construction of the Unirii motorway to Ungheni.

“I furthermore pointed out in the discussions with the Prime Minister and the major relevance granted by Romania to the settlement of the conflict in the Transnistrian region, respecting the territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova and not affecting its pro-European vector,” Dăncilă declared.

Reminder: The Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Moldova, Nicu Popescu, had a meeting with his counterpart (Teodor Meleșcanu) in Bucharest yesterday.

Minister Popescu stressed that the relationship between the Republic of Moldova and Romania is a special one, including the position of Bucharest on the events in Chisinau in the recent situation of the duality of power.

“We appreciate that Romania was the first state to summon the political forces from Chisinau towards a peaceful transition of power, so Romania has played an important role in bringing the situation to the brink of normality.”

Vladimir Putin: “Power in Moldova has been usurped by oligarchs”

The Russian Federation welcomes the co-operation between the Socialist Party of Moldova and the ‘ACUM’ and is going to support this parliamentary majority.

The Russian Federation’s position on the latest political events in Moldova has been made public a few days ago by the Moscow Foreign Ministry, which said it welcomed the formation of the ruling coalition and the government: “We are committed to cooperating with the authorities of the Republic of Moldova, democratically elected, to re-establish mutually beneficial Moldovan-Russian relations in various fields, in line with the provisions of the 2001 Friendship and Cooperation Treaty.”

Спасибо всем нашим партнёрам за поддержку легитимного Парламента и легитимного Правительства!

Geplaatst door Igor Dodon op Woensdag 12 juni 2019

“I think that Moldova is not a unique case but a more exemplary one because the power in Moldova, like in Ukraine, was usurped, in the direct sense of the word, by the oligarchs who kneeled all the state structures. They have earned money on the back of the people and used them to strengthen their personal well-being. What Igor Dodon is doing now and the party that has so far been in opposition is a step towards building a modern state. We will support President Igor Dodon and their coalition partners in order for them to finally escape these people who have usurped power and find the strength to cooperate in the interest of the people”, Vladimir Putin said.

This declaration belongs to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who mentioned in a TV interview that this collaboration between SPM and ACUM is necessary to remove Plahotniuc from power.

Europarliamentary Elections 2019: Remarkable mobilization of Romanian voters in the Republic of Moldova

Approximately 38 thousand Romanians from the Republic of Moldova exercised their right to vote in the European Parliament elections held on 26 May. According to provisional results, the National Liberal Party won the Euro-parliamentary elections in the polling stations opened in the Republic of Moldova.

There was an impressive mobilization at the polling stations opened in the Republic of Moldova for the elections in the European Parliament this year. Despite the immense queues, 37,888 Moldovans with Romanian citizenship expressed their right to vote, writes Adevarul.RO.

The attendance of Romanians in Bessarabia was 4 times greater compared to the 2014 European Parliament elections.

Polling stations closed at 9:00 PM in front of hundreds of voters who were unable to vote because of the queue that formed. In total, 36 polling stations have been opened in the Republic of Moldova. Only a few polling stations were opened in Spain and Italy, where most of the Romanians voted, followed by those in Moldova.

According to the cited source, the PNL had a maximum score in most of the polling stations opened in the territory of the Republic of Moldova – 37%. The Popular Movement Party, led by Traian Basescu, who ranked the next position, got a result of about 30%. Third place in the Republic of Moldova, with a score of about 10%, is occupied by USR-PLUS, which surpassed PSD – the party which, clearly, is supported by Plahotniuc’s Democratic Party of Moldova.

These elections are proof that, despite the previous Moldovan parliamentary election results, despite the heavy migration problem the country is facing, and despite the continuous corruption crimes committed by the ruling party, the vast majority of the Moldovan citizens are on the side of a democratic, pro-European future.

Read here to see how the Moldovan Romanians voted yesterday.
