Dear officers,
One of the main priorities of the Information and Security Service of Moldova must continue its development. It is, therefore, necessary to focus on the implementation of concrete measures to modernize the institution, according to European standards. This would allow achieving the goal of transforming the service into a body capable of responding promptly to all challenges to national security.
Although we know very well that it is a long process and that we still have much work, we must understand that providing effective dialogue with civil society, to promote policies of national security and not only service will be able to maintain authority and serve as a model of conduct for other state bodies. In this context, it is necessary to continue service actions directed towards ensuring dialogue with civil society to promote national security policies.
However, attention should be paid to ensuring the informative reintegration of Moldova, is absolutely necessary to exploit the opportunities created by the liberalization of visa regime and EU association. Being a lengthy process that requires much effort and dedication, I assure you that you have my full support in this respectfully and unconditionally.
