Estonia supports Moldovan EU integration ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonian Foreign Minister Keit Pentus-Rosimannus said at a meeting with her Moldovan counterpart Natalia Gherman that Estonia backs Moldova's EU-ambition.

Pentus-Rosimannus said it is important for the state to continue with reforms and the European Union should in turn give a clear signal on membership perspectives. “When Moldova has pushed through reforms then Europe's doors must be opened to the society,” she said.

She said the priorities for the nation are the fight against corruption, reforming the legal sphere and finance sector.

From April 28, Moldavans are able to travel to EU nations without a visa, the first EU Eastern Partnership program nation to gain that freedom.

Estonia will support Moldova's integration with 950,000 euros this year and will continue education cooperation, bringing Moldovan students to study in Estonia.

Pentus-Rosimannus also met Nicolae Timofti, the President of Moldova.
