All the European Union member states expect the Republic of Moldova to conduct an open, transparent and fair electoral process, that should observe the rules of democracy and the functioning of the state of law, Romanian Foreign Minister Cristian Diaconescu said at the end of the meeting of the General Affairs and External Relations Council (GAERC) held in Brussels on Monday.

Diaconescu said that during Monday's meeting, in which Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski unveiled the conclusions of his visit paid to the Moldovan capital Chisinau at the end of last week, the representatives of the 27 stressed that the conclusions of the GAERC meeting from June 15 keep on standing with respect to the Republic of Moldova's European route; the country is to hold early general elections on July 29.

The Romanian foreign minister explained that Sikorski had paid the visit to Chisinau following consultations with the EU Swedish presidency and with a range of other member states, Romania included, for the very reason to send the EU message ahead of the elections in the Republic of Moldova.

This message says the EU expects a positive answer from the Republic of Moldova, both in the relations with the neighbouring states - Romania included - and as regards its attitude towards the democratic norms.

During the visit to Chisinau, the Polish foreign minister had meetings with incumbent Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin, with opposition leaders and leaders of the civil society. Sikorski paid the visit on behalf of the EU Swedish presidency and of the Greek OSCE chairman-in-office, Agerpres informs.
