President Klaus Iohannis declared on Wednesday after the meeting with his visiting Hungarian counterpart Katalin Novak that it is fundamental that the projects of interest are carried out in Romania only following an agreement of our country, that they do not discriminate based on ethnicity and that they are in accordance with Romanian, European and international law, according to Agerpres.
„I reiterated the importance of dialogue for the bilateral resolution of all aspects of interest and the avoidance of unilateral approaches that cannot lead to sustainable solutions. It is fundamental that the projects of interest are carried out in Romania only following Romania’s agreement, that they are not discriminatory based on ethnicity and are in accordance with Romanian, European and international law. In this context, we once again expressed our deep conviction that people belonging to national minorities contribute to building and strengthening bridges between their state of allegiance, the only one responsible for the protection of their rights, and their state of ethnicity,” the head of the state said at the Cotroceni Palace after his meeting with Hungarian President Katalin Novak.
Iohannis showed that the visits to Romania of officials from the neighboring country were among the topics discussed with his Hungarian counterpart.
„I very clearly emphasized the constant and principled position of the Romanian side, which refers to the need for a public discourse in the logic and spirit of our strategic partnership and of the Basic Political Treaty,” Klaus Iohannis underscored.
