The status of a candidate for EU membership obliges Moldova to join the new sanctions against Russia, said Igor Grosu, chairman of the parliament and leader of the country’s ruling party. According to him, Moldova wants to have good relations with Russia, wants to trade with it, but only on the terms of mutual respect.

“We will be in solidarity with the EU, our status and European aspirations oblige us to solidarity. Of course, we will join the new sanctions. They are designed to stop hostilities. We want to contribute to this by all diplomatic means,” Mr. Grosu said on the air of the Moldova-1 TV channel.

The participants of the EU summit agreed on the granting of EU candidate status for Moldova and Ukraine on 23 June. Shortly before this, the Moldovan Foreign Ministry said that their country would not be able to join the restrictions against Russia due to the weak economy.
