“I send my regards to my newly appointed colleague. Although the term of Foreign Minister Popescu is sure to be full of challenges due to the domestic situation, Estonia is a reliable friend and partner for Moldova,” Foreign Minister Reinsalu said in a phone call, commenting on the objective of the new government of Moldova to continue on the European Union course, which requires fighting corruption, enforcing the rule of law and improving the business environment.
