Comments Off on Romanian, Bulgarian Presidents discuss Black Sea security

The EU recently agreed to extend sanctions against Russia on its actions in Ukraine following the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula, 3 years ago. Moscow also sees NATO with suspicion after the Alliance has strengthened its presence in Eastern Europe.

Moscow criticized Romania for hosting an anti-missile defense site in the United States in the southern city of Deveselu. The Romanian president reiterated that the base was “strictly defensive”, adding: “(NATO) has no strategy against Russia.”

Radev, during a two-day visit to Romania, discussed NATO, EU security and trade problems at the Black Sea with Iohannis. Radev said the neighbors had a bilateral trade of 4 billion euros ($ 4.4 billion) last year.
