Parliament and Government will not attend next Supreme Council of National Security meeting

The Parliament's President, Andrian Candu and the Prime Minister Pavel Filip will not be attending the meeting of the Supreme Council of National Security. The decision was made after President Igor Dodon, wished to include the subject of declaring Russian's Deputy Prime Minister, Dmitrii Rogozin a persona non-grata.

"This should be a Government matter, not the President's or the Supreme Council of National Security. If this issue were to be discussed at the then the Supreme Council of National Security would turn into a piece of this geopolitical fight, while there are more pressing matters that could be attended to" Parliament's President, Andrian Candu declared.

Andrian Candu wishes to make it clear the Parliament and the Government refuses to attend to any meeting of the Supreme Council of National Security, as long as the matters that will be discussed there will not be linked directly to the country's security.

'It is not a boycott. We, both the Parliament and the Government simply decided not to attend to the meeting of the Supreme Council of National Security unless it is about the Republic of Moldova's security" Andrian Candu specified.

"The law determines the role of the Parliament, the Government and the Republic of Moldova's President and we must abide it" Candu said.
