Moldova's president Maia Sandu has asked her US counterpart Joe Biden for further support for the country's economy, which has been badly hit by the war in neighbouring Ukraine, she said on Wednesday, APA reports citing SeeNews.
During a meeting with Biden in the Polish capital Warsaw on Tuesday, Sandu discussed the consequences of the war in Ukraine and Moldova's efforts to maintain peace and public order and thanked him for the support provided by the US for the economic development and democratic transformation of the country, she said in a Facebook post.
"I took the opportunity of this meeting to convey to the President of the United States that, in the difficult situation we are in, with a war at the border, we need even more US support to strengthen our economic resilience," Sandu wrote.
Last month, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said that it is providing Moldova with $30 million (28.2 million euro) to help it tackle the rise in energy prices caused by Russia's war on Ukraine. The funding is part of $320 million in emergency support that the U.S. has provided to Moldova over the past twelve months.
