Good luck to the new Prime Minister Gaburici and hearty congratulations to Iurie Leanca on the courageous reforms and project so far achieved!

MAE voices expectation that efforts to consolidate the country’s pro-European path will continue in an intensified manner
Romania’s Foreign Ministry (MAE) is taking note of the new government of Moldova having been invested and it is voicing its expectation that the Moldovan Government will continue “in an intensified and sustained manner” the efforts to consolidate the country’s pro-European path, deepen democratic reforms and strengthen the institutions for the rule of law in synch with the message sent by the Moldovans at the recent general election, reads a press release issued to Agerpres on Wednesday by MAE.
MAE points out that the investiture was made “based on a programme of actions that has a predominantly social and economic component that includes Moldova’s achieving political association and economic integration with the European Union.”
At the same time, MAE says the formation of the Moldovan Cabinet at the end of a long process of political consultations is “a premise for an immediate approach of the issues facing Moldova today.”
“Responsibility for securing efficient and stable governance that takes into account and respects such expectations from the citizens rests with all the forces that voted the Government in office. From this point of view, strictly pursuing the objective of European integration and achieving reforms against European standards will be a test of trust in these forces. Romania stays engaged under the current circumstances in the further development of political dialogue and actual cooperation with Moldova in order to support the efforts of the Moldovan authorities aimed at consolidating the European path of the country,” reads the release.
