Moldova seeks Slovenian support on road to EU
font size    

Moldova hopes to learn from Slovenia's experience in joining the European Union and get Slovenian support for its ambition to join the 27-member bloc, Moldovan parliament speaker Marian Lupu said in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana on Tuesday.

Lupu and his Slovenian counterpart France Cukjati talked about the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between Moldova and the EU, which is to end in July next year, the Slovenian official news agency STA reported.

The pair discussed the possibility of future cooperation between Moldova and the EU, especially when the presidency over the block is taken over by Slovenia in the first half on 2008.

"The talks touched on the possibility of forming a new legal and political agreement that would succeed the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement. It would be an agreement that would clearly underline European prospects for our country," Lupu said.

The new agreement would include an asymmetrical system of free trade between Moldova and the EU, a new visa system and a framework for technical and financial support from the EU after 2008, the Moldovan speaker said.

Lupu also presented Moldova's position on the Transdniester issue, saying that his country wanted all solutions to be discussed in a new framework of negotiations, which sees the EU participating as an observer.

Transdniester, a region of Moldova sandwiched between the Dniester river and Ukraine, unilaterally declared independence from the then-Soviet republic of Moldova in September 1990 but failed to win the international recognition up to now.
