On 21 November, European Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations, Olivér Várhelyi took part in the third Ministerial Conference of the Moldova Support Platform in Paris, representing the European Union.

Commissioner Várhelyi outlined the EU’s €250 million support to Moldova to tackle the energy crisis, as announced on 10 November. In addition, he focused on the Energy Rescue Scheme for Moldova proposed by the European Commission together with the Energy Community Secretariat, and on the Commission’s €25 million support for EU humanitarian aid operations in Moldova.

The EU continues to support Moldova in addressing the multiple challenges and at the same time unequivocally support the country on its European path.”
