At the meeting with Nicu Popescu, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Moldova today, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Andres Sutt confirmed that Estonia was willing to share its experience and support Moldova on its way to the European Union.

In Sutt’s opinion, the decision passed by the European Council last summer to grant Moldova the status of candidate country of the European Union was an important milestone. “We are happy to share our experience and support Moldova in becoming a member of the European Union,” he said. “I hope that, despite the difficult security and economic situation, Moldova will make rapid progress with the necessary steps and will be able to start accession negotiations as soon as possible.”

Besides the situation in Moldova, the war Russia had started in Ukraine was also spoken about at the meeting. Sutt underlined that it was necessary to support Ukraine as long as necessary, or until Ukraine’s victory. Sutt also acknowledged Moldova’s success in handling the large flow of war refugees.

Deputy Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Enn Eesmaa also participated in the meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Moldova.
