Yesterday Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi told Iranian Ambassador Bahador Aminian Jazi, newly appointed to his post in Romania, that their meeting represents a sign of openness. “I extend a warm welcome to you. The simple fact that we have this meeting is a sign of openness,” Baconschi told the newly appointed Iranian Ambassador on Monday during the presentation visit. Baconschi also evoked the more than 100 years of bilateral relations. “Tell me something promising internally-wise, what is going on in your country now,” Baconschi asked the new Ambassador, their discussion continuing after the press left the room. Bucharest and Tehran established diplomatic relations at legation level on July 11, 1902, and at embassy level on October 25, 1965. Romania was among the first states to recognize the regime installed by the Islamic Revolution that took place in Iran in February 1979 and that removed the country’s monarchy.
