The Parliaments of Romania and of the Republic of Moldova will convene in a new joint session until the end of the year, announced the President of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, Igor Grosu, according to Agerpres.
In an interview for AGERPRES, the official emphasizes the importance of the two parliaments’ meetings, showing that the previous meeting in Chisinau „had a significant impact on the decision to grant the status of EU candidate country” to the Republic of Moldova.
At the same time, Igor Grosu affirms that the pro-European path of his country „is not yet irreversible” and that the political formation he leads, the Party of Action and Solidarity, has the task of ensuring the integration of the Republic of Moldova into the European Union.
The President of the Parliament also talks about the priorities of the authorities in Chisinau (justice reform, the energy crisis, combating disinformation, manipulation, propaganda, the situation in Ukraine, investments, the anti-oligarch law), but also about the way they manage the tense situation in Transnistria.
As regards the Russian propaganda, the President of the Parliament in Chisinau recalls „a comical moment” when the Russian ambassador to Moldova „had the nerve to publish a call, an announcement on the Embassy’s page with the message that, if Russian speakers are intimidated or wronged, they should notify the embassy immediately at a certain e-mail address, and I witnessed a wave of comments from Russian ethnic speakers saying: ‘Please don’t take care of us!’, ‘Please leave us in peace!’, ‘Don’t release us! We feel good in Moldova, we don’t need your care'”.
Igor Grosu also says, in the interview granted to AGERPRES, „After February 24, the world split into two very clear parts, somehow that shade of gray disappeared, a bit of democracy or a bit of dictatorship. Things became very clear. There is the world of war, chaos, atrocities and there is the space of civilization, peace, stability, values, human rights and so on, which is the western space, the European Union, of which we want to be a part and will be a part. People can tell the difference.”
