Moldova: Background and U.S. Policy
The United States and Moldova have enjoyed good relations since the country's independence in 1991. In a visit to Moldova in 2011, Vice President Joseph Biden outlined U.S. policy toward the country. Biden praised Moldova for its commitment to reform and democratic values, including the holding of free and fair elections. He called on Moldova to continue its efforts to create a transparent legal system, to fight corruption, and to end human trafficking. He said that the United States would continue to support a settlement for Transnistria that preserves Moldova's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. He said U.S. aid would help the Moldovan government create policies to spur economic growth and attract foreign investment, train civil society to become more effective advocates, and help improve Moldova's schools. The 112th Congress addressed a longstanding Moldovan concern by adopting legislation to grant the country Permanent Normal Trade Relations with the United States (P.L. 112-208).
