Poland’s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski and his Romanian counterpart Cristian Diaconescu discussed here on Wednesday the bilateral relations, latest developments in Moldova and energy security.
“Relations between Poland and Romania have traditionally been perfect and we want to continue this trend. We have common interests in the European Union as regards to energy, agriculture, EU future budget policy and its cross-Atlantic drive,” Sikorski said after meeting with the Romanian foreign minister.
Poland and Romania were partners in Iraq and now are partners in Afghanistan, Sikorski was quoted as saying by the Polish news agency PAP.
The Polish foreign minister said that Poland and Romania welcome the fact that Moldova has joined the Eastern Partnership program. “We would like the country to keep its European drive, we would like to help it maintain it,” he declared.
Sikorski stressed that Poland opted for the best possible relations with Moldova and all its neighbors.
Diaconescu stressed that he highly valued the role of Poland in international affairs. “I have assured the Polish side about Romania’s permanent support for actions aimed at success of strategic European projects,” said the minister.
He emphasized that energy security is the No. 1 priority for Romania. “We appreciate Poland’s support and we are for the diversification of crude oil supplies’ routes and related costs,” Diaconescu said.
