You're reading: Merkel praises Moldova government for recent reforms

СHISINAU, Moldova — Germany's chancellor has praised Moldova's government for recent reforms, saying they fulfill requirements for visa free travel to European Union countries.

Angela
Merkel said after meeting Prime Minister Vlad Filat during a visit to
the country Wednesday, Aug.22, that “the reforms (undertaken) so far are very
clear and they fulfill the requirements.”

She praised the
governing pro-European alliance for reforms it had undertaken since it
came to power in 2009 when the coalition’s members defeated the
Communists — which sought closer relations with Russia — in an election.

Merkel also called for negotiations to continue over the status of Trans-Dniester, a region in eastern Moldova that broke away in 1990 over fears Moldova planned to reunite with Romania, of which it was part of until 1940.
