Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
August 23, 2013


On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I congratulate the people of Moldova as you celebrate the 22nd anniversary of your independence this August 27.

The United States supports the aspirations of the Moldovan people for a prosperous and stable democracy. We look forward to the conclusion of an EU Association Agreement at the Eastern Partnership Summit in November, which will promote political and economic reform and increase opportunities for the Moldovan people.

The United States supports a negotiated, peaceful settlement that ensures Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity while providing a special status for Transnistria within the Republic of Moldova.

With cooperation and determined effort, I am confident that all Moldovans can achieve a better, more prosperous future.
