The President of the Moldovan Parliament Andrian CANDU considers that the granting Moldova the status of observer in the Eurasian economic Union will have only “symbolic.”
“This is a political gesture of the President Igor Dodon. Unfortunately, he continues his speech with the same message, what is promoted in the electoral campaign for the presidential election. It doesn’t do any good, because society is divided. The President is taking actions to exacerbate that split, instead of having to find the solutions and projects for its consolidation,” – said the speaker reporters on Monday.
He stressed that “granting Moldova the status of observer in the Eurasian economic Union is mainly symbolic and will not affect the situation in the country or its relations with other partners.”
“Any international agreement to have legal effect, must pass the ratification procedure in Parliament. The Parliament will not ratify the agreement with the Eurasian (economic) Union. Any membership as an observer in any organization has no effect on relations with the European Union with which Republic of Moldova has the status of an associated state. Our cooperation with the EU is on another level”, said CANDU.
On Friday, the Supreme Council of the Eurasian economic Union has supported the initiative of the President I. Dodon on granting Moldova the status of an observer. The decision in this regard would be taken at a future meeting.
