Moldova will soon receive a second questionnaire from the European Commission on its EU accession application.
This was stated on the air of the Moldova 1 TV channel by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration Nicu Popescu, infotag.md reports.
According to the official, the first questionnaire, which was handed to him in Luxembourg, is more about the political system and the justice system of Moldova. The second one contains questions about Moldova's compliance with the Acquis communautaire (European norms for most aspects of state activity).
Popescu said that Moldova's main vulnerability is the justice system - dysfunctional and affected by corruption.
"In other areas, I think Moldova is quite prepared to achieve the EU candidate status. Because Moldova has a functional system of democracy, and we can say that Moldova deserves to join the EU, even if we have to do our homework. Even in comparison with the Balkan countries, which are more advanced on the path to the EU, Moldova can and should achieve more," Popescu said.
