Setting priorities framework in cooperation with German partners

The leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs met today with a group of experts from the GS Foundation.

State Secretary Daniela Misail-Nichitin discussed with the German colleagues about the implementation progress of the Memorandum in the field of strengthening the capacities of the internal affairs system to fight cross-border crime which was signed between the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the GS Foundation in mid-June.

The Memorandum provides equipping the National Police and the Border Police with high-performance equipment, as well as the implementation of an extensive training program for the Ministry’s employees. The programme provides for the implementation of a course for trainers within the General Inspectorate of Police, who will be able to train colleagues across the country on combating gender-based and sexual violence, as well as on gender equality at work.

Daniela Misail-Nichitin, experts Georg Fliege, Klaus Kandt and Nicola Popovic, Senior Gender Adviser, GS Foundation, have identified several opportunities for coordinating activities under the Memorandum, including mechanisms to implement the provisions of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security for the years 2023-2027.

Germany was among the first EU Member States to recognize the significant role of the Republic of Moldova in ensuring security in the region, on the eastern border of the European Union, in the context of the war against Ukraine launched by the Russian Federation.
