"We reiterate the unconditional support of all Romanian political forces for the development, democratic consolidation and European path of the Republic of Moldova, for the bilateral dialogue and cooperation, at all levels, between Romania and the Republic of Moldova. We point to the jointly agreed priority objective of implementing bilateral strategic projects, including interconnections in the fields of energy, transport and infrastructure," the document reads.
