The ministry stated that the Moldovan authorities are working to develop partnerships with organizations and countries to maintain peace and security in the country.
Earlier, the Moldovan authorities have repeatedly stated that in negotiations and meetings with Western partners, including NATO, they will touch on the issue of strengthening and modernizing the country’s defense potential. In particular, the head of the republic’s defense ministry, Anatoly Nosati, spoke of the need to create an air defense system, but now the country does not have funds for this.
According to the Constitution of Moldova, the republic has a neutral status, but since 1994 the country has been cooperating with NATO within the framework of the Individual Partnership Scheme. The information center of the Alliance operates in the capital of Moldova. In December 2017, a NATO liaison office was opened in Chisinau.
Public opinion polls show that more than 60% of Moldovans oppose the country’s rapprochement with NATO.
