President Maia Sandu stressed that Moldova’s possible accession to NATO would require a referendum, so that the citizens could have their say on whether to join the North Atlantic Alliance.
However, the head of state admits that there is currently no majority support in Moldova on this issue, deschide.md reports.
“The desire of citizens is needed because it means changing the Constitution, and it should be done in a referendum. But today the polls show that there is no strong support for changing neutrality,” Maia Sandu said in a program on ProTV.
According to the president, a NATO office based in Chisinau is not enough to counter Russian propaganda. In this regard, the Chisinau authorities plan to set up an institution in addition to the Supreme Security Council that will monitor and combat media manipulation and propaganda.
