INTERVIEW/Ina Coseru, Euronest PA co-chair: EPC Summit, very important step in Moldova's start of EU accession negotiations


The Summit of the European Political Community (EPC) in Chisinau, on June 1, is a very important step in starting EU accession negotiations by the Republic of Moldova and a good signal to complete the process of implementing the conditions imposed by Brussels, declared, in an exclusive interview for AGERPRES, Ina Coseru, co-chairwoman of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly. Cereport reports citing Agerpres

The most important event ever organized by the Republic of Moldova, the EPC summit on June 1, at which 50 heads of state and government and EU officials are expected, is a good opportunity for a series of "very clear messages from the European leaders on the subjects of major interest" for the citizens of the country, stated Ina Coseru in Bucharest.

The Republic of Moldova wants to receive the green light from Brussels for the start of EU accession negotiations in 2023, at the same time as Ukraine - with which it received the status of a candidate country in June 2022 -, although it is aware that a prolongation of the war in the neighboring country could delay this stage of the accession process.

At the same time, Ina Coseru admits that the Republic of Moldova is vulnerable due to the frozen conflict in the Transnistrian region, but maintains that there are several tools that can be used near the positions of the authorities in Chisinau and Tiraspol, a complicated relationship that has been redefined including by the increase energy independence of the Republic of Moldova.
