European Parliament Reaffirms Support for Moldova’s European Integration Process

The President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, declared in Brussels that the European Parliament has reaffirmed its support for the Republic of Moldova’s European integration process. One argument in this regard is the new package of assistance offered by the European Union. Metsola made this statement following her meeting with Igor Grosu, the President of the Moldovan Parliament in Chisinau. In turn, the Moldovan official emphasized that the European Parliament has always supported Moldova by approving financial aid packages.

During his visit to Brussels, Igor Grosu, the President of the Moldovan Parliament, held discussions with several European commissioners and NATO’s Deputy Secretary General, Mircea Geoană. He also had a meeting with the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola.

During a press briefing, the European official stated that the presence of the Moldovan delegation confirms that the EU stands with the Republic of Moldova and that our country is not alone in the European integration process.


“Europe is Moldova,” I addressed the crowd of approximately 80,000 people in Chisinau back in May. Now, with this visit of the Moldovan Parliament to the European Parliament, the clear direction of our relationship and the growing bond between us is reinforced. Therefore, I reiterate the message that you are familiar with – Moldova is not alone, Moldova is Europe, and Europe is Moldova. This message is supported by a new package of support, which includes participation in several EU programs,” stated Roberta Metsola.

In turn, the President of the Moldovan Parliament, Igor Grosu, mentioned that the European Parliament was the first European institution to express confidence in the Republic of Moldova.

“The trust of the European Parliament is an incentive for Moldova, a country that became a candidate state for European integration a year ago. The EU urges Moldova to make efforts to fulfill all the conditions outlined in the European Commission’s Opinion, and we are working towards that, aiming to meet these recommendations without any delays,” emphasized Igor Grosu.

It should be noted that the Speaker of the Moldovan Parliament, Igor Grosu, conducted a working visit to Brussels from July 3 to July 5. The visit’s agenda included several meetings with European and NATO officials. Additionally, Grosu met with the Moldovan diaspora in the Kingdom of Belgium.
