French President Emmanuel Macron, during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, expressed his opinion on security in Europe, including Moldova.
Macron said that “we must build security by respecting the sovereignty of countries that are not members of the EU and NATO, but which are in the region.”
“Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova are the states whose sovereignty and independence must be respected. After all, this is also part of our collective security,” the French president continued.
“This is the issue we discussed with Vladimir Putin. It will also definitely be affected in Kiev. I stress it once again – we need maximum transparency and de-escalation, because we live on both sides of common borders and there can be no security for Europeans if there is no security for Russia,” Macron concluded.
