Ambassador Hans Klemm: We must make sure that strategic partnership stays on positive trajectory
The strategic partnership between United States and Romania has never been more powerful, and regardless of the results of the November 8 election in the US or the December 11 election in Romania, it’s important that the partnership remains on a positive track, Ambassador of the US to Romania Hans Klemm stated, with the occasion of the traditional party which takes place on the night of the US presidential election.
It was a very long campaign, a controversial and dramatic one, but also full of obstacles for all those interested in the health of democracy, economy and the American society. All will be decided this evening, the American diplomat stated. He added that few of the election campaigns in US revealed social, economic and educational separations as it did the presidential campaign in 2016. It will be a challenge for the next president, wether that is Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, in trying to heal these cleavages, Klemm stated.
He mentioned that the strategic partnership with Romania is very strong in all its strategic dimensions – security, the effort to build institutions which will fight corruption, but also the strengthening of economic and commercial relations, and facilitating educational exchanges.
Never has this partnership been more powerful in regards to the contributions that Romania brought. What I believe to be important in the result of today’s American election and the result of Romania’s election on December 11 is the need to make sure that our strategic partnership will remain on a positive trajectory. I hope that the Romanian voters will be present in large numbers at the polling stations and they will elect a Government based on trust and integrity, Klemm added.
The US Ambassador invited Romanians to vote in large numbers on December 11.
If you have listened to the statements made both by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, in the past few days, one of the common themes is ‘Please vote!’ And I would like to ask you and to remind you to vote on December 11!, Klemm insisted.
The diplomat mentioned that all the revenues collected on the occasion of the US election night party will be donated to victims of the Colectiv club fire.
