President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, had a meeting on Saturday with Her Majesty Margareta, the Custodian of the Romanian Crown, and Prince Radu at the Royal Castle of Săvârșin. The head of state from the Republic of Moldova planted an oak tree on Old Oaks Alley in the royal estate’s park as a sign of the close friendship with the Royal House.
“I was glad to see Her Majesty Margareta, the Custodian of the Romanian Crown, and His Royal Highness Prince Radu again, who hosted me at the Royal Castle of Săvârșin, near Timișoara. As always, I had a warm welcome and very good discussions about the excellent relations between the Republic of Moldova and Romania,” wrote Maia Sandu on Facebook on Saturday.
She also mentioned that the positive decision in December of last year by the EU to launch accession negotiations with the Republic of Moldova is also due to Her Majesty Margareta and Prince Radu for promoting the aspirations of Moldovans to join the European family in European capitals.
“I thanked Her Majesty for the love she has for our country and people, as well as for her strong support, which brings us even closer to our European dream. The EU’s positive decision in December to launch accession negotiations with Moldova is also due to Her Majesty Margareta and His Royal Highness Prince Radu, who promoted the aspirations of Moldovans to become members of the European family in European capitals,” added Sandu.
The President of the Republic of Moldova mentioned that she also planted an oak tree on the Old Oaks Alley in the royal estate’s park “as a sign of the close friendship we have with the Royal House of Romania.”

The award, established by the Municipality of Timișoara, honors internationally recognized personalities who, with determination, courage, and creativity, promote or defend European values within and outside the European Union.
