The President of Moldova is sure that Pridnestrovie also wants to join the EU

Moldovan President Maia Sandu is sure that the people of Pridnestrovie also want to join the European Union. According to her, the prospect of obtaining candidate status in European Union gives her confidence in the future.

“I really hope that our citizens from the left bank of the Dniester will appreciate the new opportunity that is opening up – European integration. I am sure that they, like those who live on the right bank, want to live in a country where there are enough economic opportunities for people, in a country where their rights are respected, where the state is strong enough to provide quality services and security, ā€¯quotes Moldovan President EurAsia Daily.

According to Sandu, this is what they want in Chisinau, despite the fact that for a very long time there has been such a situation when the constitutional institutions of Moldova cannot reach out to these citizens.

“I am optimistic that people there (in Transnistria) will support our goal of European integration“, – said the President of Moldova.

Earlier, the President of Transnistria, Vadim Krasnoselsky, said that the settlement of the conflict in the region is possible only if the independence of the republic he leads is unconditionally recognized.

Recall The European Commission recommended granting EU candidate status to Moldova and Ukraine. As expected, a decision on this will be made on June 23-24 at the summit of EU leaders.

Georgia also applied for candidate status, but the European Commission demanded that a number of conditions be met before such status would be granted.

However, the status of a candidate in itself does not at all guarantee accession to the EU in the foreseeable future. A lot can be said about this in Turkey, which received candidate status in 1999.

However, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said on the eve of the current summit that Turkey is even further from joining the European Union than 23 years ago. It should be noted that this is not the most encouraging statement for new potential candidates.
