President Maia Sandu and the President of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, made press statements on Friday, October 1, after the official meeting.

President Sandu thanked the Slovenian authorities for recognizing the COVID-19 certificates issued by the Moldovan authorities.

“We are grateful for Slovenia’s openness to support our reform agenda. I discussed with President Borut Pahor how we can increase trade and economic relations with Slovenia. We appreciate Slovenia’s openness to recognizing COVID-19 certificates issued by the Moldovan authorities. (…) Your visit takes place in a jubilee year for both our countries, 30 years of independence. Both countries are small, we both export wine and honey. Slovenians are an example to follow for Moldova for the well-being of the people and to offer a dignified life to our citizens here in Moldova,” said President Sandu.

The President of Slovenia announced his support for President Maia Sandu and for the reforms that the Government has proposed to implement.

“You are a person of dignity and you have kept the hope of the people who voted for you. You will not solve all the problems overnight, but you will solve what Moldova wants – peace with the countries. I imagine how difficult it is to adopt the laws necessary for people to be convinced of the fight against corruption. To the extent that the EU and Slovenia can support you in these reforms – you can count on us,” said the Slovenian president.

After the welcoming ceremony, Borut Pahor had meetings with the head of state Maia Sandu and the members of the delegations.

During the day, President Borut Pahor met with Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița and the President of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, as well as a group of students from Chișinău.

At the end of the first day of the visit, the two heads of state planted a tree at the Botanical Garden in Chișinău.
