Chisinau, 17 November /MOLDPRES/ - Foreign Affairs and European Integration Minister Nicu Popescu has conveyed a declaration on an initiative of European MPs concerning the cancellation of the tariffs for roaming between EU and Moldova, the Foreign Affairs and European Integration Ministry’s (MAEIE) press service has reported.
The declaration reads:
„I welcome the initiative of the European MPs, who asked to remove the tariffs for roaming between EU and Moldova, through a letter submitted to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
Moldova pays increased interest to getting the liberalization of roaming with the European Union member states. This fact is translated into concrete benefits for the citizens, both those who travel on touristic purpose and in the case of those who make business travels, participate in an international conference or are on visit to close people in the EU area.
We proved, at the bilateral level, that this fact is possible to be fulfilled through the signing of an agreement with Romania. At present, its implementation takes place successfully, as the operators of both states apply low tariffs enjoyed by the citizens of both states.
During discussions on diplomatic channels, most EU member states showed openness for Moldova’s initiative; this subject has the European Union’s political support and is on the agenda of discussions on the cutting of the roaming tariffs; yet, it is necessary to additionally consider the legal conditions for the conclusion of a long-term bilateral agreement between Moldova and the European Union.’’
