PSD deputy calls for parliamentary inquiry into Romania’s failure to appoint ambassador to China

The Social-Democrat Party (PSD) deputy Cornel Itu announced he would call for the initiation of a parliamentary inquiry at the Foreign Ministry into Romania’s failure to appoint, for nine months now, an ambassador to China, “a country everyone courts as a world economic power.” According to an open letter Cornel Itu addressed, on Monday, to Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi, quoted by Mediafax, the latter’s main duty is the development of diplomatic ties with all states, rather than promoting the vote-by-mail bill or appointing the political clientele in various offices. “I now ask you, minister, if we can afford to say no to foreign investment offers, especially to those coming from China. At the same time, I hereby inform you that I will call for a parliamentary investigation to look into the reasons for which, for nine months now, Romania hasn’t had an ambassador to China,” the aforementioned document reads. Cornel Itu added he had applied to Teodor Baconschi for assistance in the implementation of a EUR 500 M-Chinese investment project by the company AVIC International, targeting the “Somes” Cellulose and Paper Plant, and had yet to receive a reply to his request.
