Romanian President Klaus Iohannis recently announced he would call for the country’s Supreme Defense Council to convene next week on the tense situation in Ukraine.
He said Romania is monitoring developments very closely. “No one should think,” he said, “that we are sitting and waiting for updates from others. No, we are providing updates for others because we have very effective services in this area.”
He also commented on the statements of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Bogdan Aurescu in yesterday’s interview on Digi 24. Regarding the reports on propaganda, espionage and more, he stated that this is happening all over Europe, emphasizing that an important goal for his country is to increase NATO interest in the Black Sea region. “What I want,” he said, “at this stage, is to understand that there is a need for co-operation at both NATO and EU level, and that special attention is needed on the east side. “
Klaus Iohannis announced that he will receive tonight in Cotroceni the Foreign Ministers who will take part in the trilateral meeting on Ukraine. “I support this tripartite meeting. “I gave my full attention and we believe it is a tripartite conference that contributes significantly to stability in the region,” said Klaus Iohannis.
He added that he talks “very, very often” with Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu. “I think this foreign policy cooperation is extremely important and I think it is very good,” Klaus Iohannis said while in Vacaresti Park on Earth Day. /
