Moldova’s president-elect Igor Dodon has said that Defense Minister Anatol Salaru, who advocated Moldova’s joining NATO, would be fired.

Igor Dodon said: “A minister’s resignation is possible upon the initiative of the prime minister and by a presidential decree. But the president is the supreme commander-in-chief of the National Army, so, I will insist on the soonest resignation of such a person as Salaru”.
