Foreign Minister Aurescu on former Moldovan PM’s arrest: It is extremely important Chisinau gov’t remains stable

Romanian Foreign Affairs Minister Bogdan Aurescu said on Friday, after former Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat was detained that it is “extremely important” that Chisinau Government remains stable.

“I would not want to comment the case in itself (…) What is extremely important is that the Government of the Republic of Moldova remains stable, the majority coalition maintains and pursues this pro-European route, which the vote of the Republic of Moldova’s citizens clearly showed as early as in last November”, Aurescu told Agerpres.

He hailed the positions taken by the Moldovan governing parties under such circumstances.

“I am glad to see that all the parties making up the majority coalition in the Republic of Moldova took positions today, namely premier [Valeriu] Strelet, who took up as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, also the Liberal Party, the Democrat Party; all such stands spoke of the continuation of the ruling coalition and the governmental activity”, the minister said.

The leader of Moldova’s Liberal Democratic Party Vlad Filat was detained for 72 hours on Thursday on suspicion of corruption and direct involvement in bank fraud.
