Sandu Believes that There Will Be an Opportunity for the Reunification of Moldova
OREANDA-NEWS. President-elect of Moldova, head of the Action and Solidarity Party, Maia Sandu, hopes that one day there will be a geopolitical opportunity for the reunification of Chisinau with Tiraspol, and it should be a peaceful solution to the Transnistrian conflict.
“I believe that one day there will be a geopolitical opportunity for the reunification of Moldova, and we must be ready for this. But in any case, it should be a peaceful solution. It should be a solution that satisfies the whole of Moldova. […] I understand that this is a very difficult task, but there is no simple solution here,” Sandu said in an interview with the edition Yevropeiska Pravda, published on November 20.
The head of state noted that Transnistria is supported by Russia “by supplying gas for free, and in many other ways.” She added that Moldova does not recognize debt for Russian gas supplies to Transnistria.
Sandu also opposed the federalization of Moldova. “I do not support the options proposed by Dodon [Incumbent President Igor Dodon. – Ed.] and his party, because, although they did not give clear proposals, they talked about federalization. I am sure that we will find a format for resolving the conflict, and it should include the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Moldova” she resumed.
