The transformations within the international system framework provoked by the integration processes that occur in the European region and disintegration processes that appear within CIS have a huge impact upon the foreign policy and the national interest of the Republic of Moldova. The present study focuses upon the issue of the affirmation of the Republic of Moldova as an independent state on the international political arena.

The first chapter of the present work comprises a theoretical and methodological analysis of the integration, national interest and foreign policy phenomena. The study concerning the triple correlation – integration – national interest – foreign policy, allowed us to better understand the interrelation between these notions. None of integration processes can take place without involving national status or outside of them. Each of these states expresses its own interest and realizes in through foreign policy activity, also trough elaboration and attainment of the concept of foreign policy and national interest in the Republic of Moldova. The Republic of Moldova tries to position itself clearly on the international arena and to identify the vector of national interest and priority in foreign policy in the context of the European Union enlargement to the East, as other newly formed states do.

In the second chapter of the diploma we investigated the role and the place of the Republic of Moldova within the Community of Independent States and GUAM. There is an attempt to emphasize both, the positive and the negative moments Republic of Moldova has in CIS. It is also analysed the dimension of Moldavian – Russian and Moldavian – Ukrainean based on the problem of Transnistria.

The last chapter is dedicated to the role of the Moldovan integration policy in order to outline the place it occupies within the European structures; as well as to the key-aspects of the foreign policy of the Republic of Moldova with regard to the European Union and the role of Moldo-Romanian relationship in the process of integration of our country into the European and Euro-Atlantic structures.
