Chisinau, June 5. /MOLDPRES/- On June 1, the whole of Europe came to our home to confirm that the Republic of Moldova is important and to support the aspirations of our citizens to bring the European Union to our home. Head of state Maia Sandu made the statement today.

The official said that on June 1, our country wrote history. "This event did not come from luck, but from our confidence to succeed. The summit positioned the Republic of Moldova in the center of Europe and showed that we, Moldovans, can do everything we set our minds to. I am grateful to all of you who participated in the organization of this event. We showed that we have well-trained people. The event demonstrated that the Republic of Moldova is a partner respected by all European countries. Hosting the Summit is a clear signal that our country is important to the EU and that our voice counts. In a short period of time we managed to improve the image of the country, which is perceived as a future member of the EU. During the event, we received strong diplomatic messages, the Republic of Moldova is not alone, our partners are with us", said Maia Sandu.

The head of state said that the country is carrying out a series of actions with the support of the European Union, which were also confirmed during the Summit of the European Political Community (EPC). Among them are: the modernization of the army and defense capabilities, reducing tariffs for roaming services with EU countries, starting from January 1, 2024, the strengthening of cyber security, the construction of the Cosăuți - Iampoli bridge, the increase of investments from the EU and the financial support for the gas procurement.

"The European Political Community was created in 2022, at the initiative of President of France Emmanuel Macron. This is a dialogue platform where European leaders come together every six months to discuss major issues, the war in Ukraine and the restoration of peace. We all want a future where the children of Moldova are safe. The country's accession to the EU is getting closer and brings concrete benefits to the people. Our voice matters, our European path is supported by partners. We have a clear direction and aim to launch negotiations for EU accession as soon as possible. We want to build a European Moldova at home. We are on the right track and I am convinced that we will succeed", said Maia Sandu.

On June 1, our country hosted the EPC Summit, which brought together 49 heads of state, prime ministers and senior European officials.
