A quick procedure for the accession of the Republic of Moldova to the European Union would be possible, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday in Chisinau. “I think an accelerated route is possible. Whether it will be a really fast way or whether the negotiations will get bogged down in long discussions, I hope that the European Union will open up much more widely to Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova,” said the head of the Polish executive. According to Moldpres, Morawiecki stated that everything possible must be done for the Republic of Moldova to become a part of the European Union. The head of the Polish executive made the statement in a joint press conference with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova, Dorin Recean. The two dignitaries published a joint statement regarding the dimensions of the bilateral relationship and signed a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the field of cyber security.

Mr. Mateusz Morawiecki emphasized that Poland and the Republic of Moldova are two countries that are trying to provide security for Ukraine. “We understand the threats related to war. Both countries are in the shadow of war. The efforts of the Moldovans, who are trying to live peacefully with their neighbors and to become part of the European family in an institutionalized way, that is, to become part of the EU, must be appreciated,” said the Prime Minister of Poland. He announced that his country will provide 20 electricity generators for hospitals in the Republic of Moldova. Prime Minister Dorin Recean appreciated that the visit to Chisinau of his Polish counterpart was proof of the efforts to deepen the collaboration between the two states. “We discussed the security issues in the region and reviewed the bilateral agenda that is increasing in scope. We want to continue and deepen the collaboration between the Republic of Moldova and Poland, primarily in the agricultural and transport fields”, said Recean. He wanted to note that Poland is among the 10 most important countries for foreign trade with the Republic of Moldova and invited Poland to analyze investment opportunities in the Republic of Moldova in areas such as energy and digital services. The agenda of the Polish Prime Minister’s visit to Chisinau also includes a meeting with President Maia Sandu.
