Romania has no territorial claims, says ambassador to Sofia

Romania has no territorial claims towards Bulgaria, according to Romanian Ambassador in Sofia, Anton Pacuretu.

Pacuretu’s explanation came after the remarks of Romanian Foreign Minister Cristian Diaconescu who, a day earlier, brought up the issue of the disputed territory of 17 square kilometers on a local TV station.

Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev rejected the possibility of convening the Consultative Council on National Security in connection with Romania’s claims and said that if there is a problem, it will be solved in Europe.

“In order to join the EU in 2007 Bulgaria and Romania have signed the documents for the absence of any territorial claims between the two countries, the President,” Bulgarian President said, stressing Diaconescu was talking about a unresolved issue, not territorial claims.
