We also discussed the security situation and the role of the UN in uncertain times,” said the head of state.

Likewise, according to a statement from the Presidency, the meeting discussed the efforts made for Moldova to one day become a member of the European Union: judicial reform, harmonization of legislation, and alignment with European standards.


“I was glad to see many people who want to contribute to the country’s development even though they are overseas. I invited them to work together so that Moldova can be firmly anchored in the world of developed states, with stable democracies and efficient institutions that generate prosperity for citizens,” concluded the President.
