Manila, Philippines – “Romania can be an advocate of the Philippines’ interests in the European Union.”

Ito ang sinabi ni Romanian Ambassador Raduta Dana Matache kay Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte nang mag-presenta ito ng kanyang credentials sa Malakanyang.

“Romania has been a member state of the European Union since 2007. We believe that it’s high time that we get to understand you better so that we can be a good friend and a trusted advocate of your interests and aspirations in the European Union,” ayon kay Matache.

“None of these can be achieved unless we also step up the political and diplomatic dialogue. And this is what we want to do, this is what my mandate says,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Sinabi pa ni Matache na ang 2022 ay magiging milestone year para sa bilateral relations “as we prepare to celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relations.”

“We very much hope that the Philippines will decide to reopen their embassy in Romania as a symbol of trust in the robustness and the perennity of our bilateral relations.”

“Since there is no Philippine embassy in Romania, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) previously said Philippine embassies in Budapest and Berlin are helping out in repatriation efforts in Romania,” ayon pa sa ulat. Kris Jose
