President von der Leyen and HR/VP Borrell to participate in European Political Community meeting in Moldova


On Thursday, 1 June, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will attend the second meeting of the European Political Community, alongside High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell, hosted by Maia Sandu, the President of Moldova.

48 delegations and 44 heads of state or government from across the continent will gather in Bulboaca, Moldova, at the private Mimi Castle to foster political dialogue and cooperation to strengthen the security, stability and prosperity of the European continent.

Ahead of the summit, on Wednesday 31 May, President von der Leyen will meet with President Sandu.

Later that day, HR/VP Borrell will officially inaugurate the new European Union Partnership Mission in Moldova together with Deputy Prime Minister/Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu, and Minister of Interior, Ana Revenco. HR/VP Borrell will then, in the presence of the Moldovan Minister of Defence Anatolie Nosatîi, officially handover the newly delivered equipment to the Armed Forces of the Republic of Moldova funded under the European Peace Facility.

On 1 June, in the margins of the meeting of the European Political Community, HR/VP Borrell will meet Moldovan Prime Minister Dorin Recean.

However, today the journalist and author Paula Erizanu @paulaerizanu wrote on Twitter that the centre and south of the country had a black out, but the Ministry of Energy didn’t detect the reasons.

“Some political commentators wonder whether this is an accident or a Russian test ahead of the European Political Community summit. The last time Moldova experienced a black out was in November because of Russian attacks on Ukraine,” tweeted Erizanu.
