Chisinau, 25 January /MOLDPRES/ - The support on behalf of Poland in the process of Moldova’s integration into the European Union today was expressed at a meeting of Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita with Marshall of Poland’s Senate Tomasz Grodzki, on an official visit to Chisinau, along with a group of senators from Warsaw, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.
During the discussions, the PM thanked for the technical and financial assistance, provided by Poland, in order to overcome the economic and energy crisis faced by Moldova. Natalia Gavrilita noted that, due to the support of the EU partners, Moldova had managed to consolidate its energy security, reduce the dependence on Gazprom and lay the foundations of a comprehensive process of diversification of the energy resources.
„The financial assistance provided by Poland helped us minimize the consequences of the war against Ukraine – a country which enjoys our every support in the fight for the protection of the European Union’s values. We want to edify a resilient, democratic and prosperous state and the Polish investments are welcome, in order to turn to good account our growth potential,’’ the prime minister stressed.
Also, Natalia Gavrilita thanked Poland for the actions undertaken during the OSCE chairmanship, in order to facilitate the Transnistrian dialogue and for the support in the European integration process. At the same time, the Moldovan side asked for Poland’s backing within the Solidarity Corridor initiative, launched by the European Commission last year.
In the context, Marshal of the Polish Senate Tomasz Grodzki said that Poland was willing to provide the expertise needed for speeding up the implementation of the European agenda. He stressed that the Transnistrian file was not an impediment on this way.
„The Senate of Poland does not want to be a passive spectator in the process of Moldova’s accession to the European Union. We want to share our experience, to help you cover the necessary bureaucratic steps as quickly as possible. As senators, we want you to know that the active Transnistrian file is not an obstacle on the European integration way,’’ Tomasz Grodzki stressed.
The officials expressed the need to boost the dialogue on the platform of the Moldovan-Polish intergovernmental commission, in order to deepen the bilateral commercial and economic relations. Also, a cooperation formula will be established, at the parliamentary level, in order to deliver the expertise needed in the process of Moldova’s accession to EU.
