The Republic of Moldova hasn’t been isolated internationally. According to Prime Minister Ion Chicu, during his first year in office, he had tens of constructive meetings with a number of resident ambassadors, among who were the U.S. ambassador, the ambassador of Romania, the ambassadors of Russia and other CIS states, IPN reports.
Asked about the agenda pursued by the West and the United States in the Republic of Moldova, Premier Chicu said everything is relative.
“Everything is relative, including the influence of countries that have a bigger or lesser potential. Everything is relative in this world. One thing is clear: in a world in which the economies are closely connected, where a country depends on another one through a number of indicators, it is important that namely the small countries with a small potential have good relations with all the parties,” Ion Chicu stated in the talk show “Key issue” on NTV Moldova channel.
He noted that the balanced foreign policy is an important factor and this was the key subject of many discussions and meetings with ambassadors working in the Republic of Moldova.
Referring to the most constructive relations, the official made reference to the meetings with U.S. Ambassador to Moldova Dereck J. Hogan in the context of the programs Moldova has with the IMF.
He also discussed the justice sector reform of Moldova in the meetings with the representatives of the European states.
Premier Chicu noted that he often meets with Romania’s Ambassador in Chisinau Daniel Ioniță and has discussions with a positive result with the ambassadors of the CIS states.
The official said the Government abides by a balanced foreign policy strategy that could not lead to the country’s international isolation.
“Given the relations we had with international financial institutions, we cannot speak about isolation and figures confirm this. During the last five years, no one managed to attract so many funds for infrastructure,” argued Ion Chicu.
