In Moldova, a new ministry responsible for EU accession negotiations might be created, claims Grosu

“The chances for the Republic of Moldova to start accession negotiations in the spring are very good. I don’t want to go into details; it is good to be announced by the European Commission,” stated the President of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, writes TVR MOLDOVA.

Igor Grosu specified that there are currently detailed discussions on how the authorities are organizing themselves.

“We will have introductory sessions into the negotiation process, discussing the role of the Parliament. Compared to Ukrainians and Georgians, we have been more absent in the European Parliament, and we need to compensate for this handicap,” said Igor Grosu.


The President of the Parliament also mentioned that in the Republic of Moldova, there will be a portfolio-less ministry responsible for negotiations, but he did not specify who the chief negotiator would be.

“I say let’s wait a bit. There will be someone well-known, who has been involved in the process of obtaining the candidate country status. It is good for the Executive to announce this in the nearest future. People who have been involved so far will continue to work because institutional memory matters, the connections established with European Commissioners,” said Igor Grosu.

He did not comment on the information appearing in the press that Nicu Popescu is expected to be the chief negotiator for the Republic of Moldova, categorizing the information as “rumor.”
