Catherine Ashton assured Moldova of EU support

EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton was on a visit to Moldova to assure the Chisinau authorities once again that the EU would continue to fully support Moldova on its path toward modernization and European integration.

“The Association Agreement that we are negotiating with Moldova will bring us closer to each other, both in terms of political association and economic integration. We share common visions on the promotion of reforms that should bring stability and prosperity to Moldova”, Catherine Ashton said at a joint briefing with Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat on Thursday evening in Chisinau.

The two also discussed the developments in the EU-Moldova relationship in the last three months and the prospects of this relationship.

Ashton praised the Moldovan authorities for making “a lot of progress in a relatively short period of time”.
