April 6, 2022 - Berlin, Germany - Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, yesterday met with Nicu Popescu, Moldova’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, during her trip to Berlin, Germany.

Minister Joly thanked Minister Popescu for his country’s generous humanitarian efforts to assist migrants fleeing the horrific events in Ukraine. The ministers expressed their concern over the well-being of migrants and recognized the importance of the Moldova Support Platform Conference to contend with the effects of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s illegal and unjustifiable war.

Minister Joly expressed optimism regarding international support for Moldova and reaffirmed that Canada is committed to supporting those affected by the crisis in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, including Moldova.

The ministers exchanged views on responses to President Putin’s war in Ukraine and security challenges in Eastern Europe, and they concluded their meeting by expressing a mutual desire to deepen Canada-Moldova bilateral ties.
