The methods to expedite the Republic of Moldova’s accession process to the European Union were discussed during a meeting between Chișinău’s Chief Diplomat, Nicu Popescu, and Laurence Boone, the French Minister for Europe at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Paris. The discussions took place on the sidelines of the Peace Forum.
Nicu Popescu reiterated that Moldova is ready to commence accession negotiations as soon as possible. The authorities in Chișinău are currently engaged in a comprehensive self-assessment process regarding the conformity of national legislation with the EU acquis.
“We also have excellent cooperation in the defense sector, with France assisting us in modernizing the National Army. We continue to rely on the strong support of our friends and partners in the French Republic,” said Nicu Popescu.
