Manfred Grund: Moldova can join EU without Transnistria
The Republic of Moldova can achieve its European integration goal without Transnistria. The opinion belongs to Manfred Grund, a German official who visited Moldova recently.
The Berlin statesman says although Moldova can become an EU member state without reintegrating its country, the national authorities should take all the necessary measures to bolster the trust on both banks of Nistru River.
Ion Manole, the head of Promo-LEX think tank told Moldova.ORG that Mr. Grund’s statements were made in a diplomatic way.
“They don’t say anything because they do not provide the necessary details. I think it is the case to know that the correct understanding of our issues by the foreign partners is our obligation. If we want to be helped, we have to know by ourselves what we really want,” Ion Manole told Moldova.ORG.
The expert claimed there isn’t any danger as long as we don’t have any information regarding this scenario.
“One thing is clear: we are not during 1939. No secret agreements will be signed. Everything will be done with the consent of the constitutional authorities from Chisinau,” the political analyst added.
