Emil Constantinescu criticizes Basescu’s stand on Libya

The former head of state Emil Constantinescu stated, yesterday, on RFI, that the president Traian Basescu’s stand as regards military intervention in Libya was “inappropriate” and “reckless”, adding “Romanian had been asked for a mere show of solidarity, which was not forthcoming”. Romania’s official reaction was “inappropriate, and Bucharest can no longer do anything at this point, as it missed its chance. I’m referring, here, to president Basescu’s reckless intervention during EU talks, when he opposed the idea of a military intervention, because, in its present wording, the UN resolution of imposing a ban implies a military action,” Emil Constantinescu stated. The former head of state fails to see why Romania backed and even took part in the military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan, “as US allies”, and, under present circumstances, is unable to state clearly whether it supports or opposes the action in Libya.
