The Federal Republic of Germany acknowledged the independence of the Republic of Moldova on December 14, 1991, and the diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on April 30, 1992.
The opening of the diplomatic missions – of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Chişinău, on November 2, 1992, and of the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova in Bonn, on March 28, 1995, - definitively confirmed both states' interest for the extension and deepening of the bilateral collaboration.
Since then the Moldovan-German relations have strengthened the friendship and good understanding of both sides. The Republic of Moldova deeply acknowledges Germany’s assistance within international and European organizations, particularly in the process of implementing democratic and economic reforms for the purpose of the country's European integration.
Germany played an important role in the adherence of the Republic of Moldova to the Stability Pact for South-Eastern Europe, the World Trade Organization, in the invitation forwarded to our country to the European Conference, as well as in the drafting and endorsement of the Action Plan: Republic of Moldova – European Union.
To this end, of critical importance was the May 6, 2004 Bundestag motion ‘Supporting Moldova’s Way towards Reunification and Democratization’, which lays out four key goals of the German and European policy with regard to Moldova, notably democratic and rule-of-law consolidation, sustainable economic growth, Transnistrean conflict resolution, and further entrenched relations between Moldova and the European Union.
It is to be underlined the support of the German experts in the framework of the Border Assistance Mission of the EU on the Moldovan-Ucrainean frontier starting with December 2005.
