Washington is ready to deliver arms to Moldova. That said US Congressman Gregory Meeks. However, the United States would first have to speak to the country’s government in order to reach an agreement on this issue.

The issue of arms sales to Moldova is currently being discussed with the country’s authorities, said Gregory Meeks, chairman of the US House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs.

He made the statement Saturday at a press conference in Chişinău, where he arrived as part of a delegation of US senators for talks with senior Moldovan officials. Referring to possible US arms deliveries to the former Soviet republic, he stated:

“My position is that we need to talk to the Moldovan government. We need to make sure we agree on what needs to be done.”

“I don’t want to go beyond what the Moldovan leadership is asking and asking for. I think there needs to be a dialogue, a conversation between our two countries.”

“The US will stand by Moldova.”

Meeks added that this unity and cooperation is why “Ukraine has been successful and this region will be successful”.

Transnistria: The brutal precedent of a post-Soviet war - 20 years before Ukraine

On Friday, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss announced that London was also in talks with allies to bring Moldova “up to NATO standard”. The small country could fall victim to Vladimir Putin’s “ambitions to create a bigger Russia,” Truss claimed.

Moldova is a country of 2.6 million people sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania. The country, whose neutrality is enshrined in its constitution, is neither a member of the EU nor NATO and is considered one of the poorest countries in Europe.

During the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, explosions and other provocations occurred in the Transnistrian region, which had declared its independence from Chişinău in the early 1990s. The self-proclaimed republic, which stretches along Ukraine’s border, has close ties with Moscow and is home to Russian peacekeepers.

At the end of April, Kyiv Chişinău offered its help in the violent “taking” of Transnistria. Alexei Arestovich, adviser to the President of Ukraine, stated:

“We could have managed it somehow.”

However, he added that such an operation could only be carried out at the request of the Moldovan authorities. Chişinău rejected the proposal, insisting that the settlement of the Transnistria issue could be achieved through political means and only on the basis of a peaceful solution.
