Deputy Foreign Minister Lilian Darii participated in the event dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Moldova and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between the Republic of Moldova and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration Lilian Darii participated today, 12 July 2017, at the ceremony of launching the postal stamp with special obliteration “25 years of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Moldova and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic".

The event took place in the National Museum of History of Moldova and brought together members of the diplomatic corps and representatives of national institutions.

Deputy Minister Darii mentioned that the diplomatic relations with the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which had been established on 1 June 1992, provided opportunities for the peoples of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Republic of Moldova to develop people-to-people contacts and to the business communities of the three states to promote economic cooperation and bilateral trade. The Moldovan official noted that the Czech Republic and Slovakia are among our major trade partners and represent significant markets for the Republic of Moldova’s external trade. Political dialogue is developing very well, with more reciprocal visits taking place in recent years, which have set a new foundation for the development of further relations.

The Moldovan diplomat stressed that the experience of the Czech Republic and Slovakia is very relevant for the Republic of Moldova, especially regarding the European path, emphasizing that our country will make the necessary efforts to move into this direction. He also underlined that the authorities of the Republic of Moldova, but especially the citizens of our country, highly appreciate the development assistance provided by the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Ambassador of the Czech Republic Zdeněk Krejčí recalled the Moldovan-Czech cooperation, initially within the frameworks of Czechoslovakia, initiated long ago with the visit of Prince Mihai Viteazul (Michael the Brave) to Prague in 1601. He also noted the settlement of the first Czech colonists in Moldova, in the nineteenth century, which settled predominantly in the south of the country, in the village of Huluboaia. The Czech diplomat wished that the Moldovan-Czech relations would grow more intensively over the next 25 years.

Ambassador of the Slovak Republic Robert Kirnag appreciated the positive evolution of the Moldovan-Slovak relations, mentioning the mutual support granted within the frameworks of international organizations and the assistance provided by his country to the Republic of Moldova.

Note: The Republic of Moldova established diplomatic relations with the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic on 1 June 1992.
