The interim Minister of Foreign Affairs, Aureliu Ciocoi, participated in a trilateral meeting between Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine dedicated to European integration and the Eastern Partnership. The parties signed a memorandum for cooperation on European Integration.

According to the communiqué, the memorandum sets out a series of objectives for the cooperation of the countries associated with the EU and provides a normative basis for undertaking joint diplomatic steps, trilateral consultations, public communication actions.

In his statements after signing the document, the head of Moldovan diplomacy, Aureliu Ciocoi, pointed out that the three countries with European aspirations and ambitions, which signed association agreements, free trade with the EU, obtained visa-free regimes, still send another strong signal of the desire to continue the reform and modernization agenda for the benefit of the citizens of the associated states. The signing of the memorandum and the establishment of the “Associated Trio” is a concrete commitment to intensify trilateral cooperation in the field of European integration.

In the opinion of the foreign ministers, Aureliu Ciocoi, Dmytro Kuleba, and David Zalkaliani, the consolidation of diplomatic efforts in the trilateral format is appropriate in the context of the Eastern Partnership (EAP) Summit this autumn. Foreign Minister Aureliu Ciocoi stressed that the associated countries remain fully engaged in cooperation processes within the EAP, the common interest being that this platform has an ambitious agenda that will continue the rapprochement of Eastern partners with the European Union.
