Chisinau does not intend to revise the principles of foreign policy, including with regard to the European Union and NATO. This was announced on Wednesday by Moldovan Foreign Minister Nikolai Popescu at a meeting with Konstantin Kosachev, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Federation Council.
He emphasized that the ruling coalition in Moldova will not “revise the principles of foreign policy that have been at the core of foreign policy for years, sometimes decades.” “This non-revision of previous agreements and principles implies a non-revision of the Association Agreement with the European Union, a non-revision and, accordingly, continuation of our cooperation on an individual plan of action with NATO, taking into account our neutrality as a state,” the Foreign Minister said. At the same time, according to him, Chisinau seeks to normalize relations with Moscow.
Popescu noted that the current parliamentary majority in Moldova has political and economic support for all external players. “In the end, our goal is to minimize the conflict in the external environment in which Moldova operates, so that we can improve the economic well-being of people,” he concluded.
In June, a new government and parliamentary majority were formed in Moldova, which included the Socialist Party (PSRM), which supports President Igor Dodon and supports the restoration of relations with Russia, as well as the pro-European Party of Action and Solidarity and the “Dignity and Truth Platform”.
