President Iohannis to meet Vice President Biden on US visit

President Klaus Iohannis will meet US Vice President Joe Biden on a visit to the US starting September 24, the Romanian Presidential Administration reports.

Until September 29, Iohannis will be attending a United Nations summit meeting in New York, where he will deliver speeches and meet American investors as well as the Romanian community of the US.

Iohannis announced on September 3 that he will be attending at the end of September a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly and United Nations summit in New York. He mentioned that Romania will support the reforming of the Security Council and the award of an additional seat of non-permanent member to the East-European Group.

“We are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Charter of the United Nations and the 60th anniversary of Romania’s UN membership. At the end of September, I will be in New York to attend the UN General Assembly meeting and the UN summit that adopts a post-2015 development agenda. That will be a great opportunity for me to reiterate Romania’s adherence to the objectives and values of this world organisation, as well as constant adherence to the actions of the UN system organisations as the main global framework for cooperation among states and codification of rules of conduct and international law,” Iohannis told a news conference back then at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace.

He added that Romania will back up the reform of the Security Council, with its main political stake being to gain an additional non-permanent member seat to the East-European Group.

“Romania should continue and strengthen its reputation as a peace and stability promoter in the world, a promoter of democratic values, the rule of law and human rights observance,” added Iohannis at that date.
