At the Informal EU 27 Summit in Prague, Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament, emphasized the need of protecting nations that are not members of the European Union but have a very hazardous neighbor.
Metsola believes that anything that brings countries together to discuss common solutions and concerns is incredibly essential.
“I think everything that brings countries around the table to discuss common solutions and common challenges is extremely important,” stated Metsola.
“The fact that the next meeting will be held in Moldova is extremely important,” she added.
The idea that the upcoming convention will take place in Moldova is critical for Moldova’s future and significance in geopolitics.
The President highlighted, “We have to also protect countries that are not yet member states of the European Union. Have aligned themselves with our sanctions and are very much at the mercy of a very intimidating neighbor, such as Moldova.”
She emphasized that meetings like the one held yesterday are welcome. Any opportunity for discourse is beneficial. Particularly, ensuring that all nations enact and enforce sanctions.
“Does not exclude in any way from the ongoing very welcome path of member states that are new candidates to join the European Union whether we are talking about Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia from its path,” said Metsola.
Metsola also stated that the European Union has vowed to grow into the Western Balkans and would continue to do so.
