Due to the performance of Maia Sandu and the pro-modernization forces, the Republic of Moldova is again on the EU agenda
The former Romanian presidential adviser and the general director of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute (IDR), Iulian Fota, commented on the current situation in the Republic of Moldova, appreciating the efforts of the new governments to increase the standard of living in the Republic of Moldova. Fota noted that Moldova has returned to the EU and Western agenda and has every chance of becoming a success story of the Eastern Partnership.
“Due to the remarkable performance of President Maia Sandu and the pro-modernization forces in the Republic of Moldova, this country is again on the map of Europe and is again on the EU agenda, on the Western agenda, because the positive signals of support measures will come in equally. It is clear that at this moment the West has again a hope in the modernization of the Republic of Moldova, it has a partner there, which is extremely important, because we cannot talk about modernization, prosperity, raising the standard of living with Dodon and his comrade, who had no intention but to enrich themselves and their acolytes. All these visits (no. Of foreign presidents to Chisinau) should be taken as a compliment to the president and as an appreciation for the efforts made by the people there. The Republic of Moldova has the chance to be the success story of the Eastern Partnership. If we compare now what is happening in Chisinau with the other countries in the Eastern Partnership, we see that the Republic of Moldova, by far, is the best “, said Fota during the show Punctul pe AZi on TVR Moldova.
The former presidential adviser also referred to the aid received by the Republic of Moldova recently, which was missing during the government of Igor Dodon.
“All the leaders and most of the international organizations have already offered concrete elements of help, something that we did not have in the time of Igor Dodon. I have already seen that there is a whole series of financial aid, extremely important for a country that is still bankrupt. We see that every leader comes with important aid, from vaccines, extremely important during this period, to a series of punctual aid, development assistance. It is very important to draw a line and ask what aid came in Dodon’s time, not even Russia helps Moldova, and what aid is being received now since he is in power or government that proves that he has a real will to modernization and development of the country “, mentioned the ex-counselor.
Iulian Fota wanted to comment and be that Moldova was mentioned in the UN speech of US President Joe Biden, mentioned that this is a signal and that this Washington is satisfied with what is happening in Chisinau.
„R. Moldova was not mentioned by chance in that speech, it is a signal. Moldova is on the agenda of major capitals, including Washington. Washington is happy with what is happening and what it is seeing. You can’t help but be satisfied after so many years in which some people only had in mind to enrich themselves and their customers in the end of the competent people. Let’s look at the Dodon government component. Were there people with studies in the West who performed well? How can I not greet the West what is happening in Chisinau, when in fact, after so many years of taking a step back, you have a government that wants to do something for people who deserve a good life. You are on the right track, I am with you, we continue together “, a aconchis Fota.
