EU wants creation of ruling coalition due to back Moldova's European development vector
The European Union wants the creation of a ruling coalition that will support the European development vector of Moldova. Swedish and Polish Foreign Ministers Carl Bildt and Radoslaw Sikorski, on a visit to Moldova, made statements to this effect in Chisinau.
The heads of the diplomacies from the countries which hold the EU Presidency this year and will hold it in 2011 met the leaders of those four parties which made it to the parliament, as well as with the Moldovan foreign and European integration minister in Chisinau today. At a news conference, organized by the Foreign and European Integration Ministry, the two officials showed optimism about Moldova's European future. Yet, they stressed that a government in a coalition is not an easy process. "It is not easy to work in a coalition. But if the Chisinau leaders are able to manage their deeds correctly, Moldova is likely to get a dream team which would propel it closer to the EU," Sikorski said.
Both the Polish foreign minister and his Swedish counterpart reiterated that the EU supports and is set to back Moldova. They added that the Moldovan government coped perfectly within the Eastern Partnership in 2010, stressing that this fact enhances the chances to have a liberalized economic and visa regime.
The two officials wanted to told the Chisinau politicians to continue "what they started one year ago."
Foreign Minister Iurie Leanca said that the two officials from Sweden and Poland came to Chisinau several days before the European Ministerial Conference, where a report on the development of the Eastern Partnership will be unveiled. The minister emphasized that Moldova's development in 2010 is being appreciated very much in this report. "No other country was characterized as Moldova in this report," Leanca specified.
The foreign ministers came to Chisinau at an invitation by Iurie Leanca. The officials said they are in Moldova with the knowledge and representation of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Baroness Catherine Ashton.Moldpres
