    Poland notes with deep satisfaction the fact that Moldova’s new pro-European government has won a vote of confidence in the country’s Parliament. The new cabinet will be headed by Prime Minister Iurie Leanca, an experienced politician and expert on European integration, who has previously served as Moldova’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration.

    The formation of a new government coalition (“Pro-European Government Coalition”) brought to an end the latest political crisis that Moldova had to grapple with for the past several months. We hope that in the context of the upcoming 3rd Eastern Partnership Summit, which will be held in Vilnius this November, the stabilization of the country’s political situation will help complete an important stage in bringing Moldova closer to the European Union.

    We are glad that Igor Corman, a former Co-chair of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Republic of Poland and the Republic of Moldova, will be new Speaker of the Moldovan Parliament.

    We also note with satisfaction Natalia Gherman’s appointment to the post of Moldova’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration. In the past, Ms. Gherman directly coordinated negotiations on the Association Agreement with the EU, as well as Moldova’s efforts to meet requirements under the Action Plan on Visa Liberalization.

    Poland remains a strong advocate of bringing Moldova closer to the European Union.
