Ireland requests Romania’s support in preparations for OSCE presidency

The Irish Foreign Minister, Micheal Martin, was, at the end of last week, on a visit to Bucharest, stating, after a meeting with his Romanian counterpart, Teodor Baconschi, that several Irish companies found great potential in Romania and are meaning to stay here in the long run. The head of Dublin diplomacy further stated that Ireland asked for Romania’s support in preparing for the presidency of OSCE, which it is to take on in 2012, adding that he was looking forward to a strong commitment on this by officials in both countries.

The Romanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Teodor Baconschi, stated, in turn, that Ireland may act as a guide for Romania, owing to its expertise in the absorption of European structural funds. “We have a good bilateral cooperation. We would only wish for a more evenly-distributed trade balance, as, for the time being, we import more goods from Ireland than we export there,” Baconschi stated, quoted by Agerpres.
