President of the Moldovan Parliament Andrian Candu on Wednesday announced that he apologized during the meeting he had with the Senate and Deputies Chambers Speakers Calin Popescu-Tariceanu and Liviu Dragnea for the statements made by President Igor Dodon about Romania.
“It brings me a great joy to be here today, in Bucharest, and to be able to have a good talk between such good friends and partners, with Speaker Dragnea and Speaker Tariceanu, a good talk as families have, I would say, for this is how we feel when we come to Bucharest – like home. We reviewed the bilateral relations agenda at parliamentary level, but also the general agenda of relations between the Republic of Moldova and Romania. We also tackled provocative discussion, including some that are coming from Chisinau. I also apologized. I really did apologize for the statements made by the President of the Republic of Moldova against Romania and about Romania, for it seems that a President who is lacking so many abilities tries to compensate them through statements that he makes against Romania. And I apologize for that,” stated Candu, at the Parliament Palace, after meeting with Speakers of the two Chambers of the Parliament in Bucharest.
He also underscored that Romania is an important partner of the Republic of Moldova.
“Romania is an important partner of us. Romania is an important partner, the number one partner and the number one friend and this is very well known in Chisinau and no one can speculate otherwise. Even if there were various interpretations made by the authorities in Chisinau, our top priority remains European integration and the reforms that we started for our European integration and Romania is out partner and our lawyer in the European integration process. We rely very much on Romania. I personally rely very much on my colleagues from the Romanian Parliament.. We’ve discussed several events that we are about to organize together in Bucharest and Chisinau and I am certain that we can do it,” said Candu.
