August 27, 2018

On behalf of President Trump and the American people, congratulations to all Moldovans on the anniversary of your independence.

Since 1991, the United States has been a faithful partner in Moldova’s democratic and economic development. We continue to support and encourage reforms that will allow Moldovans to enjoy the broad benefits of Euro-Atlantic integration. We continue to support Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders, with a special status for Transnistria, and we remain committed to continuing our active participation in the 5+2 settlement process to resolve this protracted conflict.

Best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous year.
