Moldova joins those who want peace in the Middle East and globally

The Republic of Moldova is among the countries that promptly and without hesitation condemned Iran’s attack on Israel on Saturday night.

Moldova condemns in strongest possible terms Iran’s unprecedented missile and drone attack on Israel and fully supports the international community’s efforts to prevent escalation. Our thoughts are with all those who want peace in the Middle East and globally,” Maia Sandu wrote on her account on X (formerly Twitter).

Minister of Foreign Affairs Mihai Popșoi also expressed solidarity with Israel and its people. “As regional security throughout the Middle East is seriously threatened, further escalation must be avoided,” he noted on the same platform.

Israel war cabinet member Benny Gantz noted that Iran “met the strength of the Israeli security system.” He made a reference to the minimal damage caused by the assault involving hundreds of projectiles.

He said that the event is not over and Israel will exact a price from Iran in a way and time that suits it. He cited the need to build a regional coalition against Iran. “Iran is a global problem, it is a regional challenge and it is also a danger to Israel, and yesterday, the world clearly stood together with Israel in the face of the danger. Israel against Iran, the world against Iran – this is the result. This is a strategic achievement, which we must leverage for Israel’s security,” he stated.

The unprecedented attack on Israel, which will be the subject of a UN Security Council emergency meeting, has sparked strong global condemnation and calls for restraint. The G7 leaders, in a video conference on Sunday, “unanimously condemned Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel”, European Council President Charles Michel said after the talks, calling for “restraint” from all sides, AFP reported.

As for the U.S., CNN said that U.S. President Joe Biden persuaded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to resort to retaliatory action and to consider Saturday a win because Iran’s attacks had been largely unsuccessful and demonstrated Israel’s superior military capability. The U.S. assessed that there was “no significant damage within Israel itself”.
