CHISINAU, March 23. /TASS/. Moldova will introduce changes to its security strategy because of new challenges and threats in the region, Chisinau announced on Monday following a meeting of the Supreme Security Council convened by President Nikolay Timofti.
"The government has been ordered to set up an inter-ministerial working group to develop Moldova’s new security strategy. The situation in the region is changing rapidly, Russia, the US and Poland have already renewed their doctrines. Moldova’s strategy endorsed by its parliament back in 2011 has exhausted itself," presidential defense and national advisor Alexey Barbaneagra told reporters after the meeting.
He declined to provide more details. However, according to presidential spokesman Vladimir Tsurkanu, "the meeting paid special attention to the risks to information security", something the country is exposed to now. "The council members were unanimous in the opinion that this impact had to be reduced," he said.
