“The need to extend the state of emergency is determined by the risks to which Moldova is still exposed and by aspects related to national security”, Daniel Vodă said.
“Today the Government proposed to extend the state of emergency for another 60 days. Therefore, from 3 August, the state of emergency might be extended for another two months. A meeting of the Commission for Emergency Situations was held this morning. The rapporteur was the Interior Ministry, which presented strong arguments.”
“The need to extend the state of emergency is determined by the risks to which the Republic of Moldova is still exposed and by aspects related to national security, including the accidental overflight of drones and missiles over the airspace, as well as the continuation of aggression against a neighbouring state, and we, being on the border, need the necessary tools to be able to ensure peace, public and energy security of the country.”
“After the decision is approved at the Government meeting, the Prime Minister will go to the Parliament, where he will deliver a speech arguing the necessity of extending the state of emergency. We will inform the public about the date when the Prime Minister will go to the Parliament,” Vodă specified.
The state of emergency in Moldova was last extended for 60 days on 4 June. The state of emergency in our country was introduced on 24 February 2022 with the outbreak of war in Ukraine.
