NATO is following with concern the political crisis in the Republic of Moldova. We call on all political forces in the country to exercise calm and restraint, and to resolve their differences through dialogue, in full respect of the rule of law.

The Republic of Moldova's democratically elected leaders need to work together to overcome this crisis.

We reaffirm NATO's continuing support to the Republic of Moldova in the reform of its defence and security institutions. NATO and the Republic of Moldova have been close partners for more than 25 years. We remain committed to the Republic of Moldova’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
