Speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye (GNAT), Şentop made contacts in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, to pay an official visit. September 15, 2022

Stating that the strong political relations between Türkiye and Moldova are also reflected in the economic and commercial relations, Şentop stated, ‘In line with our common goal of reaching a trade volume of 1 billion dollars, we have come a long way despite problems such as the disruption of supply chains due to the epidemic and war.’

Noting that Türkiye ranks third among the countries to which Moldova exports the most, Şentop stated that 51.4% of Moldovan citizens come to Türkiye for a holiday.

Stating that the country most affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine is Moldova, Şentop stated, “We believe that it is more important than ever to give constructive and unifying messages to our Gagauz cognates in this period. It is well thought out that the Council of Ministers meeting will be held in Gagauzia in October.”

Speaker of GNAT, Şentop reminded that the bilateral use of the Trans-Balkan Pipeline was brought to the agenda after the Moldovan Prime Minister also brought up the demand for support from Türkiye on natural gas.

Şentop also warned the Prime Minister of Moldova about the five active FETO schools in Moldova.
