Moldovan-German dialogue aimed at adjusting the tasks of the internal affairs system to the new national and regional security conditions

Minister of Internal Affairs Ana Revenco undertakes a working visit to Berlin. The delegation is expected to meet on March 16 and 17 representatives of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the Chancellery, the Federal Foreign Office, and members of several Bundestag committees. The main purpose of the meetings with the German officials is to strengthen the new European security paradigm, including by outlining the role that the Republic of Moldova could assume within the European Political Community.

It is worth mentioning that Germany was among the first countries to understand the role of the Republic of Moldova in ensuring the security belt of the European Union on the border with the war. Since 24 Februarie 2022, Germany has stood by the Republic of Moldova in supporting all its efforts to fight cross-border crime triggered by the Russian Federation’s aggression against Ukraine: it has acted to increase the mobility of the national police and border police, it has provided the Republic of Moldova with generators that allowed critical infrastructure still to function during hours when electricity was lost throughout the country. Germany is now one of the most active supporters of the EU Support HUB in Chisinau as part of law enforcement cooperation.

During today’s meeting in Berlin with her counterpart Nancy Faeser, Minister Ana Revenco said:

Our visit to Berlin proves that together we are stronger. In order to strengthen the resilience of the entire Europe, today, together with Minister Faeser, we will discuss the new European security paradigm, which implies close cooperation in several areas, such as intelligence sharing, defence, home affairs and technologies. We will also discuss the Republic of Moldova’s role in ensuring Europe’s security belt. We would also like to identify the best cooperation methods with the German authorities in order to enhance the migration and border management system in line with the EU provisions. The Moldovan delegation will stay in Berlin until the end of this week. Over the next few days, Moldovan officials will initiate several discussions with ministers and members of the Bundestag to identify solutions to adapt the tasks of the internal affairs system taking into account the long-lasting effects of the war across the border and the consequences it causes already for Europe and worldwide.
