President Buzek concludes official visit to Moldova

The President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek has concluded his official visit to Moldova on Friday, 10 December 2010. The President met with the acting President of Moldova and the Head of Parliament, Mihai Ghimpu, with Prime Minister Vlad Filat, the leader of the Democratic Party, Marian Lupu and representatives of the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova.
President Buzek delivered a speech on "Moldova and the EU: partnership for the future" at Moldova's State University, Faculty of International Relations, Administrative and Political Sciences.
President Buzek concluded the visit by saying:
"I came to Chisinau to convey a message of solidarity and encouragement: the European Union is committed to Moldova. We salute the enormous progress achieved on the path to a European future. Stay firm on this path. You are not alone. We stand by you. The decision is yours and yours alone.
Moldovans are living in a decisive time for their country. Today Moldova is standing at a crossroads. In front of you is a crucial choice, which will influence strongly the future of your country.
Moldova is the spearhead of the Eastern Partnership; it is the good pupil of the class. Over the last 12 months, EU-Moldova relations have been carried forward to an unprecedented level of dialogue. Moldova has proved its reliability as a partner. We have achieved a lot in record time - started Association Agreement negotiations, achieved progress towards opening negotiations on a deep and comprehensive free trade area and last, but not least, the Action Plan for visa liberalisation is in the waiting.
There is a strong and unanimous interest in the EU in maintaining the current momentum in our relations, to the benefit of Moldova's citizens.  
I want to encourage stability in the country, support the unity among the political parties and promote the continuation of the successfully started reforms."
