Summary/Abstract: The Republic of Moldova European course maybe passes through the most difficult moments since the launch of the Eastern Partnership and the establishment of a new government in Chisinau. While the finality of the negotiations on the (re)creation of an alliance of government (an eventual Alliance for European Integration 3) is still uncertain, the “Euro skeptic” signals coming from European officials are intensified. The Republic of Moldova was announced that the Association Agreement, implicitly the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, will not be signed in November 2013 in Vilnius but delayed until 2014. After the Moldovan diplomacy missed the target (promised to society) of visa liberalization with the European Union by the end of 2012, recent statements by two European officials, the European Commissioner Stefan Fule and the Head of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Moldova Dirk Schuebel, in which connection is made between the liberalized visa regime and the Transnistrian conflict have brought about more uncertainty on visa dialogue with the European Union as well.
