Commissioner Johansson co-hosts the meeting of the EU Support Hub for Internal Security and Border Management in Moldova

Ahead of the meeting, Commissioner Johansson and Minister Revenco will hold a press point at 9:30 CET which will be broadcast live on EbS. During the meeting, ministers will take stock of the achievements of the hub and discuss priorities for future cooperation on internal security.

Russia’s brutal aggression against Ukraine has a significant impact on the security situation in Europe and beyond. Due to its geographical location, Moldova has a key role to play. As an operational platform, the hub supports cooperation on internal security and border management between the EU, its agencies, the Member States, and the Moldovan authorities.

It operates along six priority areas: firearms trafficking; migrant smuggling; trafficking in human beings; preventing and countering terrorism and violent extremism; cybercrime; and drug trafficking. The hub intends to serve as a one-stop shop on existing support measures for Moldovan authorities, as well as to provide a gateway to EU-Moldova cooperation on support mechanisms on internal security and border management, and identify the needs of the Moldovan authorities in terms of capacity-building for law enforcement and border management.
