Statement on the political situation in the Republic of Moldova

June 9, 2019

“Canada is closely following the latest political developments in the Republic of Moldova. We take note, with reservation and concern, of the court ruling which led to the invalidation of the newly formed coalition government, followed by suspension of the President, and a decree ordering new parliamentary elections.”

“We encourage all political parties and institutions in Moldova to engage in dialogue to resolve the current impasse. Any resolution should follow international democratic standards, the rule of law, and reflect the democratic will of the Moldovan people.

“Canada reaffirms its support for Moldova's path towards European integration and reform. We firmly believe that any and all decisions taken to address the current situation should preserve and promote these important objectives.”
