Today Chisinau will host the 9th meeting of the Joint Committee on European Integration between the parliaments of Romania and the Republic of Moldova (RM), during which a corresponding resolution will be signed.
At the meeting, which will be attended by representatives of the Moldovan government, discussions will be held aimed at obtaining the opportunity for the republic to directly join the European Union. This was stated by the co-chairman of the committee on behalf of the Moldovan Parliament Petr Frunze.
At the same time, MEP from Romania Andrei Daniel Gheorghe highly appreciated the work of the aforementioned commission, noting that over the 13 years of its activity it has actively supported the Republic of Moldova in this direction.
It should be noted that the Joint Committee for European Integration between the parliaments of the Republic of Moldova and Romania was established in 2010. In total, it consists of 20 members from the legislative bodies of Chisinau and Bucharest (10 from each side). The parties agreed that meetings within the Committee will be held twice a year, alternately in Moldova and Romania.
Meanwhile, the President of the country, Maia Sandu, held a meeting with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, who paid an official visit to Chisinau today. Following the talks, the parties reaffirmed Moldova's "commitment" to the EU accession process, and the head of the Moldovan state once again stressed the need for the country to continue its European development path in order to "improve" the lives and well-being of citizens.
Taking into account the fact that negotiations on European integration are underway with the Romanian side, it can be assumed that the very integration of Moldova may turn out to be accession to Romania.
