The Governments of Romania and of the Republic of Moldova will hold in the upcoming period a joint sitting in Chisinau, Moldovan Premier Pavel Filip announced at the end of the meeting with his Romanian counterpart Viorica Dancila.
“Together with Mrs. Prime Minister we surveyed bilateral relations and found they are solid, the relations between the Republic of Moldova and Romania are excellent. We also highlighted the multiple instruments that can render this dialogue even more productive, I am referring in the first place to the governments’ joint meetings that have been highly efficient in the past and we decided to have another one in the next period and we were pleased to propose that it should take place in Chisinau,” Filip said.
The Moldovan PM stressed that Viorica Dancila’s visit to Chisinau “is highly important because Romania has been and stays the most steadfast supporter of the Republic of Moldova” both on domestic and foreign level.
“We had a constructive and sincere exchange of views, and the proposals made on this occasion reaffirm the desire to strengthen the strategic partnership between our countries. I can say that we found total understanding and support on all the subjects approached. I briefed Mrs. PM Viorica Dancila on our progress with domestic reform and foreign actions in the context of the promotion of our European agenda. In connection with this we expressed our gratitude for the balanced messages promoted by Romania both within bilateral formats and within the Brussels institutions about the Republic of Moldova’s domestic situation and progress made with the implementation of reform. In particular I thanked Romania for its efforts in organizing the meeting.

Developing relations between Romania and the Republic of Moldova is a top priority of the Government of Romania, Premier Viorica Dancila said on Tuesday in Chisinau, where she met with her Moldovan counterpart Pavel Filip.
PM Dancila says the relationship between the two states is “special”.
“It is not just by chance that my first visit is to Chisinau, it is the first visit I make as a Prime Minister and this shows my attachment to the Republic of Moldova. The relationship between Romania and the Republic of Moldova has been and stays a special one, a theme both societies have expectations of. Developing our relations is a top priority of the Government of Romania and the strategic goal is the European integration of the Republic of Moldova,” Dancila said.
The head of the Romanian Executive said that talks with her counterpart in Chisinau were aimed at “reviewing both the ongoing projects and identifying new initiatives aimed at advancing bilateral cooperation, as well as the European agenda.”
“We have a substantial portfolio of ongoing projects, which have a common thread, the irreversible connection of the Republic of Moldova to the European Union, including to Romania, in terms of energy, infrastructure, institutions and values as well,” added the Prime Minister of the Romanian government.
