imgU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will pay an official visit to Moldova in early December, the State Department said on Wednesday.

He will be the first secretary of State to visit Moldova in more than twenty years. 

Kerry will meet with senior government officials to discuss issues of common interest and the country’s integration into western Europe.

The U.S. Secretary of State canceled plans last week to attend a meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Ukraine after the country suspended intentions to sign Association Agreements with the European Union.

Moldova instead has said it will defy Russian pressure and agree to strengthen relations with the EU.
