The United States is ready to supply weapons to Moldova if such a request is received from the Moldovan government.

This was stated by the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives Gregory Meeks at a press conference in Chisinau, writes Radio Europa . 

“My position is that we need to talk to the Moldovan government. I don’t want to go beyond what the Moldovan leadership requires of us,” he said.

According to him, “the dialogue is underway” and decisions will be made “collectively” between the allies, and Moldova is one of the best allies of the United States.

“One of the reasons for the success of Ukraine and the success of the region is that we will work together. We will focus our efforts on getting all our allies to work together with one voice and in one direction so that Putin does not continue his incursions into other countries” Meeks noted.

Recall that earlier the President of Moldova demanded the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria .

    • I think part of the reconstruction of Ukraine should include tax incentives to bring diaspora back to Ukraine but also include Moldova and Georgia. After dealing with forced relactions and worse, there should be an incentive to bring people back and weed out any Moskali. What do you think?

      • That is a very sensible measure, Red. Ukraine will need its people to come back. Every hand is needed, every clever mind is needed, every patriot is needed. But, keep out the trash, once and for all!

      • It should be prioritized absolutely.
        All three of the countries you name have got fifth columnists that need removing. I understand that deportations look like ethnic cleansing, but if you’ve got maggots burrowing away destroying the carcass, you have to act.
        Georgia is in a difficult position; it has an anti-putler population and a quietly pro-putler govt. But not pro-putler enough to make them safe from invasion. They recently made noises about Nato and the EU again, which is bound to anger the rodent.

  1. I understand the need to help Moldova, but not like this. This only thins-out what help could be given to Ukraine. Why is this relevant? Because, if Ukraine wins, Moldova wins too. We should concentrate fully on helping Ukraine to win this war. Besides that, we have no idea how good or bad the Moldovians are as fighters, or? But, we do know how very well the Ukrainians fight. Keep with the known and concentrate on the job at hand! Don’t mess with a good running system.
