The first foreign visits by President Iohannis: Brussels, Kishinev, Berlin and Paris

President Klaus Iohannis returned on Monday to the Cotroceni Palace after his winter holiday.

On Tuesday, President Klaus Iohannis will attend the meeting of the Supreme Council of Magistrates and the official installing of the new Chief of Staff.

This month, Klaus Iohannis will also make a few official visits. He will travel to Brussels and the Republic of Moldova.

President Klaus Iohannis has prepared official visits to Brussels, Kishinev, Berlin and Paris for the first months of the year, preparing an “external profile of the president”, personal advisor Mihai Ungureanu, Prime Vice-President of PNL pointed out on Monday.

“January means, first of all, a visit to Brussels, based on the NATO and EU, European Council and European Committee focus. The Republic of Moldova will follow, obviously. Also, January is the month of the first major encounter with the Diplomatic Corps in Bucharest, the so-called New Year’s reception, and the opportunity of the greatest speech on foreign politics”, Ungureanu mentioned.

Moreover, the PNL Senator pointed out that the first part of February will be dedicated to the reunion of the European Council, but it will also include a series of bilateral visits in Berlin and Paris presently “undergoing discussions”.

As for a visit in the USA, Ungureanu mentioned that it would take place “at the right time”.

“We are creating an external profile of Romania’s President, so that it would be trustworthy, well-contoured and recognized as such. His international dialogue partners are very important. We have work to do”, Ungureanu declared.

Mihai Razvan Ungureanu, the honorary advisor by Klaus Iohannis, will advise the president on foreign affairs until the attributions are overtaken by Lazar Comanescu, former Romanian Ambassador in Germany.

The announcement was made by the former Prime Minister on Monday morning, before the meating of the PNL – PDL unification committee. MRU also mentioned that he would work for creating the external profile of the President, due to his experience as former Foreign Affairs Minister, former Prime Minister and former Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SIE).

Thus, Ungureanu remains Klaus Iohannis’ honorary advisor despite of the discontentment of certain organizations in Diaspora that have recently requested in an open letter addressed to the President to give up the advice of the former Prime Minister.
