President Maia Sandu had a meeting in Bucharest with her Romanian counterpart, Klaus Iohannis, during which she thanked him for the initiative to invite the Republic of Moldova to participate in the Three Seas Initiative Summit as an associated state of this regional platform.
The two leaders also discussed the excellent cooperation between Chisinau and Bucharest.
“I thanked President Iohannis for the initiative to invite the Republic of Moldova to participate in the Three Seas Initiative Summit as an associated participating state. Participation in this platform opens up new opportunities for us: access to infrastructure projects that connect us with other countries in the region and facilitate our economic development,” said Maia Sandu.
The Three Seas Initiative was conceived as a flexible and informal political platform at the presidential level, initially including the 12 EU member states located between the Adriatic Sea, the Baltic Sea, and the Black Sea – Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Greece has also joined this group of countries, becoming the 13th member state.
