Chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Jason Chaffetz told Agerpres that he believes Donald Trump, as the president of the US, will soon realize who his country’s friends are in the world and Romania is certainly one of them.

‘I had the opportunity to go to Romania and bring 10 congressmen with me. I was so impressed. I had the opportunity to visit with the president. And the relationship between the US and Romania is an important one, it’s a strategic one, and it’s a strong one,’ Chaffetz said.

‘I think that Donald Trump, as the president of the US, will soon realize who our friends are in the world and Romania is certainly one of those. I saw it first hand when I was there, it really was a great experience. On the military side, the economic side, there are a lot of ties to bring Romania and the US together,’ he added.
