On the 8th of October Mrs Eugenia Kistruga, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Moldova, had a meeting with Mr Pierre Andrieu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the French Republic to the Republic of Moldova, at the latter’s request. The discussions referred primarily to the works of the coming Summit of the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF), which is to take place in Quebec, Canada, during October 17-19. A delegation from the Republic of Moldova will participate at the Summit.

The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs underlined that the Republic of Moldova supports the efforts of the OIF to strengthen its political and economic dimensions, particularly focused on promoting human rights, democracy and the state of law.

The Chief of the French diplomatic mission exposed the priorities of his country for the Quebec Summit, these being concentrated on the political, economic and environment fields. The Deputy Minister assured that the initiatives France is about to launch in the framework of the La Francophonie reunion at high level will be supported by the Republic of Moldova.

Finally, the interlocutors welcomed our country’s inclusion in the project „The French language in the European Union”, a multiannual training programme in French for civil servants. France finds itself among the founders of this programme.
