Luxembourg and Moldova

I smell a future state visit in the works! On Monday, June 14th, Prime Minister Vlad Filat of Moldova was in your favorite Grand Duchy and mine to attend a working luncheon with the foreign ministers of EU member states involved in the Moldovan "friendship group," meetings for which are aimed at "exchanging opinions about relations between Moldova and the EU and at establishing new priorities in the bilateral dialogue." (Say that 3 times fast.)

The Prime Minister also had the honor of being received by that dashing duke - The Grand Duke to be exact - HRH Henri at the Grand Ducal Palace, at which the Prime Minister thanked HRH for the meeting and emphasized the value of the developing relations between Luxembourg and his country, such as Lux's humanitarian assistance involving the micro-state. In turn, The Grand Duke asserted that he closely follows the evolutions occurring in Moldova and is impressed with the country's progress and achievements while The Prime Minister extended an open invitation for The Grand Duke to visit.
