“We are working to continue the process of modernizing the country and to implement the European agenda of the Republic of Moldova, following the decision to grant our country the status of candidate for EU membership. Now, we have an even greater responsibility towards our citizens who aspire to be part of a space of peace, stability and the family of the EU states “, said Natalia Gavrilița.

For his part, Anthony Blinken mentioned that the transformations initiated by the Executive are viewed with great optimism by the United States of America, which will remain with our country and provide support for priority reforms.
