President Maia Sandu had a meeting yesterday with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, Gabrielius Landsbergis, who is on a working visit to Moldova.
The president claims that the current problems of Moldova were discussed.
“I thanked for the constant support given to our country for the last 30 years – economic and political support, including in the context of cooperation with the European Union. I reminded that Moldova is the first country to recognize the independence of Lithuania in May 1990, and I expressed my hope to maintain this dynamic relationship in the future. We also discussed the current challenges Moldova is facing – the political and economic crisis, the fight against the pandemic, the fight against corruption, and money laundering. I expressed my determination to further promote the necessary reforms for the development and modernization of the country,” said Maia Sandu in a Facebook post.
The Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Gabrielius Landsbergis stated that Moldova will benefit from a tranche of anti-COVID-19 vaccines from Lithuania.
“During this meeting, we discussed the pandemic situation and the situation of Moldova. Lithuania was among those 13 countries that signed a letter expressing support for the development of a mechanism at the EU level to facilitate the access of Eastern Partnership states to COVID-19 vaccines. Lithuania will do its utmost, together with other countries, to make it possible to vaccinate the population against COVID-19 as soon as possible,” said Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis.
