President Maia Sandu met with Dereck Hogan. What did they talk about?

The President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, had a meeting with Dereck J. Hogan, the Principal Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of State within the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs of the US State Department and former US Ambassador to our country. The topics of the discussion concerned the bilateral strategic dialogue between Moldova and the USA as well as the political and security situation in the country and the region.

Maia Sandu reiterated the importance of the US Treasury Department’s action to sanction nine individuals and 12 entities associated with grand corruption and Kremlin influence in our domestic affairs. In this context, the head of state emphasized that Moldova wants even closer cooperation in terms of judicial assistance in criminal matters, including in the process of recovering public money stolen from the citizens of the Republic of Moldova.

Sandu appreciated the contribution of the American government to the development of friendly and cooperative relations and thanked the former ambassador for the important support provided by the US in political, economic, and anti-corruption reforms, the deepening of European integration, as well as for the considerable financial help to overcome the current crises.


We remind you that the Ministry of Finance of the United States (Department of the Treasury) imposed sanctions on Vladimir Plahotniuc and Ilan Șor. In an announcement on October 26, US Ambassador Kent D. Logsdon said the sanctions were effective immediately. Apart from the former leader of the Democratic Party and the leader of the Şor Party, who fled the Republic of Moldova in 2019, seven other people and 12 entities are targeted.
