The war in Ukraine must not go abroad, and Moldova is currently suffering from this military conflict.
This was the message delivered today, November 29, by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the NATO Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Bucharest, reports realitatea.md
Stoltenberg explained that the war in Ukraine has led to a significant increase in prices of products in Moldova, and lately has also affected our country’s energy sector.
“There is support from NATO allies and from the European Union. We see the severity of this war not only for Ukrainians, but for people all over the world, which has led to an increase in food prices, especially in Moldova. Moldova is also suffering from power outages. The outages in their power grid are a terrible consequence of the war and are interrelated to what is happening in Ukraine. This war must not go beyond Ukraine,” Stoltenberg said.
At the same time, the NATO Secretary General spoke about his recent meeting with Moldovan President Maia Sandu.
“I recently met with the president of Moldova. I expressed my solidarity and sent a strong message from many NATO allies that we are ready to provide practical support to the Moldovan people,” Jens Stoltenberg added.
