Dr. Maia Sandu, the President of the Republic of Moldova was guest of one of the eldest diplomatic academy in Europe, Diplomatische Akademie Vienna. Her speech gave the audience a brief but consistent insight in the recent political and economic history of the country, and was followed by a Q&A session from the public.

President Sandu reinforced the political will to follow a democratic, pro-European path, as well as the willingness to have equally good relations with all neighboring countries, mentioning she would not see why Russia would have anything against the determination of the new leadership in the Republic of Moldova to embrace Western values. In this context, President Sandu affirmed that there will be no change in the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova concerning the neutrality of the country: it “is and stays there”.

On questions referring to geopolitics and the Transnistrean conflict, President Maia Sandu underlined that the conflict is to be solved peacefully and “at home”; she stressed that issues of geopolitics have and are not being addressed intentionally, due to predecessors that have abused the topic and used it to spread fears.

President Sandu said that she “must be  politically involved” in a country which is not a presidential republic, and argued that by doing so, she is consequent in her determination to have a Parliament composed of political parties, not of corrupt groups of interest.
