The PPDA’s candidate for Chisinau’s mayor job, Andrei Năstase, shares the view of the Frankfurt-fled oligarch, Viorel Țopa, in the issue concerning the Republican Stadium. He opines it’s disgraceful that the U.S. Embassy is going to build new quarters there.
”I feel ashamed for all our central and municipal authorities, for the state our national arena has turned into today. One will thoroughly consider whether it will be handed to the U.S. Embassy. No matter what the Government wants, the city will have a strong word to say in this case”, said Andrei Năstase at debates on Radio Moldova.
Earlier Viorel Țopa wrote in a Facebook post the possible construction of the diplomatic mission in Chișinău, on the area of the former Republican Stadium was ”a disgrace.”
”A new U.S. Embassy will be on the place of the Republican Stadium. It would be a big disgrace, if it turns true, but it would also explain a lot concerning the attitude of the U.S. Embassy to Moldova,” Țopa wrote.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy to Moldova has reacted to the news about the construction of a new office for the diplomatic mission.
„The U.S. Embassy appreciates the steps undertaken by the Moldovan Government to support our intention to build a new embassy, which mirrors our deep and on-going bilateral relations. The talks concerning the acquisition of a new plot are under way”, reads a release by the diplomatic mission.
