The Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM) dissociates itself from Prime Minister Ion Chicu’s statements that can seriously affect the relationship between Chisinau and Bucharest and will ask to immediately convoke the Coalition Council so as to discuss the issue, IPN reports, quoting a press release of the party, which is a member of the PSRM-PDM government coalition.
“The Democratic Party of Moldova expresses is profound concern about the controversial exchange of messages between the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova, Mr Ion Chicu, and Romanian MEP, Mr Siegfried Mureșan. The language used by Mr Chicu in his posting on Facebook, the labeling against the Romanian politician and the conclusions he formulated are inadmissible and unpardonable. The Democratic Party fully dissociates itself from such a disproportionate approach. We love Romania, appreciate its brotherly contribution to building a democratic and European state in the Republic of Moldova and the complex assistance offered by our Romanian brothers to our economy, culture, education sector,” runs the press release.
The PDM considers such approaches can seriously affect the relationship “between the two close states that are united by language, history and traditions. For these reasons, we will ask to immediately convoke the Coalition Council so as to seek explanations from the Premier.”
Also, the PDM expresses its disagreement with the tendentious and disrespectful way in which MEP Siegfried Mureșan appraises the governments of the Republic of Moldova. “The categorical formulations like “failure in managing the COVID crisis and in doing reforms” are superficial and untrue. Moreover, by asserting that the PDM Government, the Filip Government “destabilized the situation in the RM and didn’t make progress in implementing reforms”, Mr Mureșan said a crass untruth as our government achieved a 65% level of implementation of the Association Agenda with the European Union, the progress in 2016-2019 representing 35%, while the given period saw a general improvement in all indicators. We regret the situation as this dialogue that lacked common sense can contribute to the worsening of the Moldovan-Romanian relations, and will be making effort to overcome this unordinary situation,” said the Democratic Party.
