The United States congratulates Maia Sandu on her historic achievement as Moldova’s first female elected president. Since 1991, the United States has been a dedicated partner to Moldova. We have supported the Moldovan people as they have worked to build their democracy and a more prosperous future for their country. Moldova’s leaders should now work together to face the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, develop Moldova’s economy, strengthen its democratic institutions, and defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity. The United States will robustly support these efforts.
