Moldova asked to be granted observer status in the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), the president of the republic Igor Dodon wrote on the Facebook page.
The message says that he has already sent a request to the chairman of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council — the head of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambaev.
«The Union seeks to ensure the free movement of goods, services, capital and labor, to support sustainable development and increase the competitiveness of the economies of member countries, and also make joint decisions to protect and promote national economic interests," Igor Dodon said.
He stressed that Moldova, which signed the association agreement with the EU in 2014, should cooperate both with the West and with the East. At the same time, the Moldovan leader hopes that the initiative of the country will be considered at the meeting of the heads of the EEU member states at the end of May.
