Foreign Affairs Minister Bogdan Aurescu is paying this Friday an official visit to Chisinau where he will meet with Moldovan President Maia Sandu; on this occasion, the Romanian top diplomat will reaffirm Romania's staunch support for the comprehensive reform program initiated by the Moldovan head of state, the Foreign Ministry said in a release.
Pro-European parties gained a convincing victory in the elections in Moldova on Sunday after 99.60 per cent of the ballots cast were counted.
According to these results, the pro-European Action and Solidarity Party, PAS, led until recently by President Maia Sandu, came first by a landslide, taking 52.60 per cent of the votes and 63 seats of the 101 seats, a comfortable majority.
Moldova's Socialist leader and former president, Igor Dodon, praised Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for his country's recently adopted law in Budapest on the LGBTQ community.
"I congratulate Mr Orban and the Hungarian people for adopting this law despite the barriers imposed by some European Union leaders and the liberal lobby in his country," Dodon wrote on his Facebook page.
The Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Ludovic Orban, sent a message on Thursday regarding the early parliamentary elections in the Republic of Moldova, in which he expresses his support for the Action and Solidarity Party (PAS) and conveys to Moldovan citizens that each vote guarantees the progress of this country, as well as "a stable, honest, pro-European government."

"Maia Sandu will organise these elections from her office, as 120 million lei [about 6 million euros] are needed for the elections, and parliament will not vote for that," Dodon said, referencing the pro-EU President seeking early polls.
