Christian Danielsson, European Commission Director General for European Neighbourhood Policy visited the Republic of Moldova Chisinau, during 16 and 17 September, to reaﬃrm the EU's commitment to support the reform efforts of the Government led by Prime Minister Sandu to deliver tangible beneﬁts to the Moldovan citizens.
On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.
Following the change of government in June 2019, the Republic of Moldova has moved resolutely with the implementation of key reforms to address the deterioration of democratic standards and the rule of law, in order to allow citizens to fully benefit from the EU-Moldova Association Agreement.
The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova invites the regional press to apply for participation in the eighth edition of the study visits to the EU institutions and member states.
On this first International Day commemorating the victims of acts of violence based on religion or belief, we pay tribute to all those around the world who lost their lives and suffered attacks because of their religion or belief. Persecution as a response to religious belief or affiliation, or lack thereof, is a violation of international law and requires joint work to combat it.
