Irish ambassador talks bilateral ties at Senate

The head of Senate’s foreign affairs committee, Titus Corlatean, yesterday met Irish Ambassador John Morahan to discuss bilateral cooperation and the promotion of various bilateral partnerships. “The intention is to promote partnerships between Romanian and Irish institutions possessing a much richer and successful experience in respect of attracting EU funds,” Corlatean said after the talks.

He also stressed that there was a major interest in promoting scrutiny mechanisms in connection with European legislative proposals that are now being transmitted to national parliaments under the new mechanism set forth by the Lisbon Treaty. The foreign affairs committee chief also announced that a delegation of the Irish Parliament’s European affairs committee in charge of the scrutiny procedure would visit Bucharest at the end of April to share experience with relevant Parliament committees.
