The official visit of the Romanian minister of Foreign Affairs, Titus Corlatean to Russia is scheduled for July 8-10.
Titus Corlatean and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov exchanged letters Saturday, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Political Treaty between Romania and the Russian Federation, on 4 July 2003. The exchange of letters was conducted through the Russian ambassador in Bucharest, Oleg Malginov and the state secretary with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) Bogdan Aurescu, who attended yesterday a conference organised at the headquarter of MAE, dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the signing – on 3 and 4 July 1933 – of the Titulescu-Litvinov Conventions on the Definition of Aggression. In his letter, Lavrov appreciates that “this document became the confirmation of the common intention to strengthen the reciprocal confidence, renew the whole complex of bilateral relations, so they reach a new level of quality that corresponds to the realities of today’s Europe.” The head of the Russian diplomacy appreciates that the Treaty “lays a sound legal basis for the stable and progressive development of the Russian-Romanian ties on the wide spectrum of directions, the more complete appropriation of the existing cooperation potential for a long-time perspective.”
In his turn, Corlatean writes in his letter that “signing the document marked an important moment for laying the bilateral Romanian-Russian relations on a modern basis, thus crowning, after long efforts of negotiation, the constructive dialogue between the Romanian and Russian diplomatic services, thus offering new perspectives for the future collaboration in areas of interest for Romania and the Russian Federation.” The Romanian minister also speaks about “positive accumulations” registered of late in the relation of between two countries, giving as example the economic, cultural, inter-parliamentary fields as well as the completions operated to the bilateral legal framework.
