22.10.2010 MEP T. Zdanoka warns about possible repeating of Latvia's mistakes by Moldova
EFA MEP Tatjana Zdanoka spoke in the debate on developments in Moldova (21 October) - which wants eventually to join the EU. Zdanoka - Vice Chair of the Delegation for Relations with Moldova - said that Moldova should not see EU membership as an end in itself, pointing to Latvia's own example. The Latvian MEP also emphasised the need to step up economic and judicial reforms, particularly in the fight against corruption. She noted besides, that the recent introduction of "Soviet occupation day" creates more dividing lines in Moldovan society.
