Bulgaria supports Moldova’s “EU perspective”, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov has told his Moldavian counterpart Iurie Leanca.
The two met Monday in Bucharest (Romania) during a forum of the Foreign Ministers of the countries from the Danube region.
On behalf of the Bulgarian government, Mladenov welcomed the recent presentation of an action plan for visa matters and the start of talks between Moldova and the EU for a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), within Moldova’s participation in EU’s Eastern Partnership Program directed at the former USSR republics in Europe.
Bulgaria’s top diplomat stressed before his Moldavian counterpart that the establishment of legitimate and stable state institutions in the Republic of Moldova is of primary importance.
Mladenov has also reiterated Bulgaria’s support for the official resumption of the talks on the status of the so called Transnistria, a breakaway Moldavian province without international recognition.
