By submitting the second part of the European Commission’s questionnaire for EU candidate status, we have completed the third step in our list of 10 steps to accession. With this announcement came today, May 13th, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, Nicu Popescu.
Popescu specified that the transmission of the second part of the questionnaire represents “the most complex bureaucratic exercise carried out in record time”, on which occasion he expressed his deep gratitude for each person involved.
“Together, through dedication, responsibility, combined effort and the ambitious reform agenda, we will bring our country closer to the EU. The answers to the 1822 questions in the second part of the questionnaire, structured in 33 chapters on 2 800 pages of answers relating to the acquis communautaire, were written by a dedicated team of officials from ministries and state agencies, representatives of civil society, members of the diaspora and friends of our country in the European Union. We have shown that together we are a force. It is a truly historic stage for our country “, the minister wrote on a social network.
This comes after the Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița sent yesterday, May 12th, to the EU Ambassador to Chisinau, Jānis Mažeiks, the second completed part of the questionnaire on obtaining the status of EU candidate country for the Republic of Moldova. The questionnaire was sent to the Ambassador on the occasion of the relocation of the EU Delegation to a new location.
