President-elect of Moldova Maia Sandu assured that her plans do not include intensification of cooperation with NATO. She stated this in an interview with Moldova 1 TV channel on Thursday.
“Have you read something in my [election] program about NATO? I believe that we should talk about people’s problems and today they are not waiting for joining NATO. The main problem now is the fight against corruption, the problem of a state captured by mafia clans. “, – she said, tass.ru reported.
According to opinion polls results, the majority of Moldovans do not support the republic entering into NATO. The country’s constitution provides for the neutrality status. Since 1994, the republic has been cooperating with the alliance according to the individual partnership plan.
The incumbent President Igor Dodon’s term of office expires on December 23. By this time, the new president, the leader of the pro-European Action and Solidarity Party Sandu, which was recognized by the Central Election Commission as the winner of the second round of the presidential elections on 15 November, is expected to take office. The results of the elections and the mandate of the new president are to be confirmed by the Constitutional Court of Moldova.
