The misinformation that was aimed at the European Union by foreign media outlets in the recent past is inacceptable, but these attempts will not have an effect, the Head of the EU Delegation to Moldova Peter Michalko stated in a video interview for IPN.
“It’s true that we face misinformation that refers also to the current situation. This is probably an opportunity for them to attack the European Union. This is absolutely inacceptable and we must say it clearly that these attempts will not have an effect. The European Union continues its work, its open cooperation with the partners, including with the Republic of Moldova with which we are connected by very close relations. The Association Agreement and the Free Trade Agreement will show once again that they are appropriate instruments for supporting the Republic of Moldova, the people who live in the Republic of Moldova, including for overcoming the consequences of this crisis,” said Peter Michalko.
The ambassador noted the population in this period needs correct and transparent information.
“We must be active against these misinformation attempts. We must underline that informing is important and this crisis shows how important correct and transparent informing is, how important it is for society, including about the prevention and overcoming of this type of crisis,” stated Peter Michalko.
The interview given to IPN News Agency by the Head of the EU Delegation in Chisinau Peter Michalko forms part of the series “Moldova’s Relations with Development Partners” that is supported by the Hanns Seidel Foundation of Germany.
