Iohannis: Strategic partnership with US is vital

President Klaus Iohannis declared, on Friday, after the informal reunion of the European Council in Malta, that the Strategic Partnership with the United States of America is "vital" to Romania, Bucharest's position regarding the EU-US relationship being for a strong partnership.

"The EU-US relations. Everybody agrees that this is a traditional relationship and this is how we should keep it. To Romania, this relation is obviously very special. I have underscored countless times that to Romania, the Strategic Partnership with the United States is highly important, vital and in this context, of course Romania's position was for a strong partnership and I am confident that we are heading that way," stated Iohannis.

As regards the migration issue, he said that Romania is willing to help those involved in security measures by organising training sessions. "I highlighted that it is very important to look at the causes of migration and to help the countries where most migrants come from," added the head of the state.

He specified that both the matter of migration and the one of the EU-US relations were discussed "on a very positive note."

"Both issues gave away an extremely important aspect to us: we are united. The EU knows what it wants, leaders are convinced that only together we will be able to solve the problems we are confronting with, only together we can face the crises," emphasized the President.
