Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, made the following statement:

"I am pleased that following the parliamentary elections of 28 November 2010, a new Parliament has been constituted in the Republic of Moldova. I welcome the formation of a governing coalition and approval of a new government on 14 January. This is an extremely important step for the country's democratic development. I am confident that the new government will continue to build on the substantial progress, which has been achieved in EU-Moldova relations.

I hope that all political forces represented in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova will engage further in open and constructive dialogue paving the way for the election of the President of the Republic.
