The President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, met with Dereck J. Hogan, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs of the US Department of State and former US Ambassador to Moldova. The topics of the discussion focused on the MD-US bilateral strategic dialogue as well as the political and security situation in the country and the region.

President Maia Sandu reiterated the importance of the US Treasury Department's action to sanction 9 individuals and 12 entities associated with high corruption and Kremlin influence in our internal affairs. In this context, the head of state stressed that we want even closer cooperation in terms of judicial assistance in criminal matters, including in the process of recovering public money stolen from Moldovan citizens.

President Maia Sandu appreciated the American government's contribution to the development of friendly and cooperative relations and thanked the former ambassador for the important support provided by the US in political, economic and anti-corruption reforms, deepening European integration, as well as for the considerable financial help to overcome the current crises.
