A new meeting of the European Union-Republic of Moldova Association Council is taking place in Brussels today, chaired by the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, and Prime Minister Natalia Gavriliţa.

This is the most important format of dialogue in the Chisinau-Brussels relationship, analysts in Chisinau say. Today’s meeting is the first meeting of this kind after the Republic of Moldova (with a predominantly Romanian-speaking population), together with Ukraine, obtained the status of a candidate country for EU accession in June last year.

Cooperation in overcoming the challenges triggered by the war in Ukraine, including the energy crisis, the expansion of export quotas on the European market for Moldovan producers, and border security are just some of the topics that will be addressed in the bilateral discussions in Brussels.
