Moldova, Romania and Ukraine agreed on joint border controls to accelerate the movement of goods. The agreements were reached at a meeting of government representatives of the three countries in Chisinau. According to the Moldovan Infrastructure Ministry, the measures are designed to facilitate the export, import and transit of goods through the territory of the three countries. “The parties agreed to optimize border crossing processes through joint customs control on the Moldovan-Ukrainian section and a border coordination point on the Moldovan-Romanian section of the border,” the Moldovan Infrastructure Ministry said on its Facebook page. Previously, Moldova, Ukraine and Romania had already united several checkpoints where customs and border services of the two countries carry out joint control. Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at a press conference following talks in Bucharest with his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis that a grain corridor to Romania via Moldova would be opened soon.
