We are following with concern recent events in the Republic of Moldova where political and constitutional crisis has emerged.
We respect the will of the people of Moldova expressed in the Parliamentary elections this February, which were competitive and respected fundamental rights.
We call on Moldovan political parties not to raise tensions and to settle all the political differences that have emerged in the post-election period so that democratically elected state institutions could continue their work without constraint and delay. We call on democratically elected officials to fulfil their political functions following the principles of the rule of law.
We consider it of core importance to maintain peace and restraint, addressing the existing disagreements through political dialogue and peaceful transition of power.
We express our support and willingness to work with the democratically elected institutions in Moldova.
We support Moldova in its European path and in its reform efforts. It is of utmost importance to continue to work actively on the full implementation of the EU-Moldova Association Agreement, including DCFTA.
