Minister of Internal Affairs Ana Revenco met today in Bucharest with Romanian Senator Nicoleta Pauliuc, President of the Committee for Defence, Public Order and National Security.
The meeting is part of the efforts of the two sides to develop and boost cooperation according to the text and spirit of the Declaration on the establishment of a Strategic Partnership between Romania and the Republic of Moldova, signed in Bucharest on April 27, 2010. Romania’s support is primarily targeted at the interests of the citizens of the Republic of Moldova and the implementation of strategic bilateral projects.
In this regard, the main forms of cooperation include: transfer of expertise to bring Moldova’s legislation in line with EU standards, joint access to non-reimbursable external funds to strengthen the security and emergency response system, training of Moldovan MIA’s specialists in Romania and joint management of the consequences of Russian aggression against Ukraine.
The Romanian high dignitary congratulated Minister Ana Revenco for the very important role that the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Moldova plays in securing the external borders.
As Pauliuc mentioned, given the huge pressure on the Republic of Moldova due to the humanitarian crisis triggered by the Russian aggression on Ukraine, the Ministry of Internal Affairs from Chisinau has managed the situation very well, giving confidence to its citizens and preventing any destabilizing actions.
Both sides expressed their appreciation for the positive development of Moldova’s inclusion in the European security ecosystem by strengthening measures to protect the EU borders in the context of the war in Ukraine.
The initiative was launched on April 14, 2022 at the proposal of Moldovan President Maia Sandu, Romanian Senator Nicoleta Pauliuc, President of the Committee for Defence, Public Order and National Security, and Minister of Internal Affairs Ana Revenco.
