In connection with the conflict in Ukraine, Moldova failed to write the application for membership in the European Union, said the head of the Moldovan Nicolae Timofti.
"Moldova failed to submit this year a petition for membership in the European Union because of the conflict in Ukraine," Timofti said. However, He expressed hope for "individual approach" to Moldova from Brussels, reports the news Agency.
in Riga we have confirmed the desire of the official Chisinau for accession to the EU and received assurances from partners that will support us in the future on this path, " said Timofti. At the same time signed the Association agreement of Moldova with the EU, former Prime Minister Yuri Leanca believes the Summit in Riga failure. Speaking at today's press conference in Chisinau, He noticed that " in Riga no discussion about the integration of Moldova into the EU, as about it write Moldovan media "." The summit was supposed to be an important event for the state and a new stage in the bilateral relations of Moldova with the EU, but in reality, differently, as a failure, it can not be called. It should be recognized that things were moving in the wrong direction. In comparison with the Vilnius summit in November 2013, Moldova is nothing to brag about. I hope it will be a cold shower for our government, " said Leanca. He expressed the conviction that "without external pressure" the current authorities will not be able to implement real reform. Before the last working day of the week the head of the European Council Donald Tusk said that the countries of the "Eastern partnership" nobody gave guarantees automatic entry into the European Union. In July last year the Moldovan deputies voted for the ratification of the agreement about unification with the European Union. Remember, Moldova and Georgia at the end of June 2014 in Brussels with the EU signed the Association agreement, providing for entry into the free trade zone of the European Union.
