Moldovan Parliament Strengthens Cooperation with Norwegian Legislative Body

In a bid to enhance bilateral relations, Igor Grosu, the President of the Moldovan Parliament, engaged in discussions today with a delegation from the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of the Storting, the Norwegian Parliament. Led by Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide, the delegation and Moldovan officials agreed to intensify cooperation at the parliamentary, friendship group, and specialized committee levels, as reported by MOLDPRES citing the Legislative Communication and Public Relations Department.

“As we are in the process of harmonizing legislation, we are interested in receiving expertise in priority areas such as strengthening institutional capacities, judicial reform, and energy security. The publication of the European Commission’s report, recommending EU member states initiate negotiations with Moldova, confirms our efforts to implement these significant reforms,” stated Igor Grosu.

Discussions also covered topics such as Norway’s assistance in Moldova’s national environmental protection and afforestation campaign, as well as attracting investments in renewable energy. Dignitaries also delved into the regional situation, Moldova’s support for Ukrainian refugees, and the ongoing struggle against hybrid warfare. “State institutions are engaged in combating this phenomenon from the Kremlin, and the citizens’ votes in the last three elections clearly indicate that the future of Moldova is European,” added the President of the Parliament.

Today, Norwegian parliamentarians also held a joint meeting with the Chair of the Foreign Policy and European Integration Committee, Doina Gherman, and the Chair of the National Security, Defense, and Public Order Committee, Lilian Carp.
