EU to support Moldova with reforms, if the country wants that

The president of the European Union is on a one-day visit to Moldova. He urged the country to reform its justice system and fight corruption.

Herman van Rompuy said Wednesday that the EU will give Moldova euro50 million ($70 million) to support reforms needed if the country wants closer ties with the bloc. He has also urged political parties to find a solution to elect a president, saying political stability is essential for implementing reforms.

A pro-European alliance won elections in November, but it doesn’t have enough votes to choose the president, and the Communists say they will block the alliance’s choice.
