Details: The statement says that Moldova has expressed its readiness to supply electricity to Ukraine as part of the gas-to-power project by placing generating units on its territory using natural gas supplied by Ukraine for this exchange.


"For this purpose, the parties will look for solutions to make the gas infrastructure commercially reliable," the ministers said.

The Foreign Ministers stressed that the three states share similar visions and concerns about the current security situation in Europe in the context of Russia's ongoing armed war against Ukraine and stand for a common European, democratic, peaceful and prosperous future.

The parties promised to strengthen political dialogue and cooperation in the areas of security and defence, trade, energy, infrastructure, education, as well as strategic communications and countering disinformation.


"We underline our commitment to the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova within their internationally recognised borders, including their territorial waters," the statement reads.

Meanwhile, Moldova and Romania reiterated their support for the Peace Formula of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and welcomed efforts to achieve a comprehensive, fair and sustainable peace for Ukraine and strengthen global security, building on the results of the First Global Peace Summit.

The parties also stressed the primary importance of developing regional electricity connections and promised to work together to increase the capacity of the Trans-Balkan Corridor as part of the Vertical Gas Corridor.

In addition, the foreign ministers expressed their readiness to work towards increasing the efficiency and volume of transit of goods, primarily agricultural products, from (to) Ukraine through Moldova and Romania to the Danube ports, giving special priority to the Path to Solidarity railways.

Recently, Slovak President Peter Pellegrini promised to increase electricity supplies to Ukraine.

France sent 41 power generators to Kharkiv and Chernihiv, whose energy infrastructure was heavily damaged by Russian strikes.
