“The Council is a collegial institution created to provide a general framework for cooperation in the field of implementation of international restrictive measures in the Republic of Moldova and the introduction of such measures by the Republic of Moldova on its initiative,” the draft government decision states.


The members of the Council will be able to monitor the sanctions applied by the Republic of Moldova, inform the persons concerned about them if the measures are imposed by the authorities of our country, and communicate the reasons for the decisions taken.
