'Gavrilita reaffirmed our country's interest in purchasing natural gas at the joint EU procurement platform,' the Moldovan Cabinet press office said. 'Access to this platform will allow us to ramp up the process of reinforcement of Moldova's energy security.'

Moldova currently experiences an energy crisis due to a price hike for natural gas and electricity, which provoked price increase and protests across the country.
