Deputies are opening the discussion of the bill of the Bloc of Communists and Socialists (BjCS) on permanent neutrality.
The document is included in the agenda of the meeting of the commission on social protection, health and family, which will be held on Wednesday, April 13, aif.md reports.
According to the authors, permanent neutrality means that the Republic of Moldova undertakes to remain neutral in any conflict in the present and future, regardless of the warring sides and the place and time of its occurrence. At the same time, the Republic of Moldova will not allow the deployment of troops of other states on its territory.
This, however, does not prevent our country from using all the means at its disposal for military protection against any aggressors and preventing any actions incompatible with its neutrality that the belligerents may commit on its territory.
"Ensuring national security and defense implies that one cannot sacrifice one's own interests in favor of another state, group of states or international structures ... The goal of neutrality is to increase the country's security rather than limiting its defense capability," the document says.
At the same time, the BoCS notes that the adoption of the permanent neutrality bill does not exclude the participation of the Republic of Moldova in global, regional and sub-regional efforts to promote international stability and security through humanitarian cooperation with the UN, OSCE and other non-military international organizations.
