Parliament Speaker Igor Grosu held a meeting with OSCE Chairman-in-Office, North Macedonian Foreign Minister Bujar Osmani.
The two sides discussed the security challenges faced by Moldova as a result of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, moldpres.md reported, quoting the Legislative Assembly’s public relations department.
During the discussion, the Parliament Speaker said that peace preservation remains a priority for our country and the authorities will take necessary efforts in this direction, including at the legislative level.
“The citizens’ security and the country’s safety are now our main concern, and we will continue doing everything necessary to protect our state and citizens. Amendments to the Criminal Code will be on the parliamentary agenda, which will give the competent bodies the necessary tools to ensure that all those who work against the country are brought to justice,” the head of the Legislative Assembly said.
The officials also discussed the Transdniestrian conflict settlement process, as well as the OSCE’s role in consolidating Moldova’s stability. The speaker reiterated that the dialogue in the 5+2 format cannot be resumed as long as the aggressor is the dialogue partner.
“At the same time, we are obliged to ensure that the rights and freedoms of the citizens on the left bank are respected,” Grosu said.
