Romania is reaffirming its strong support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Spain, while firmly and irrevocably rejecting Catalonia’s “unilateral declaration of independence,” the Romanian Foreign Ministry (MAE) said Saturday in a press statement.
“Spain is an important ally and strategic partner of Romania, a relationship reflected both bilaterally and inside the EU and internationally. We want to emphasise that the legitimacy of any process or action that affects the domestic affairs of a state is provided by full compliance with the fundamental law, with the rule of law in that state. We are reiterating the consistent position of Romania in favour of the respect of the international law, which does not allow for territorial changes without the consent of the state concerned.”
According to MAE, “the situation in Catalonia regards the domestic affairs of Spain”.
“The situation generated in Catalonia affects Spain’s domestic affairs, and we are hoping that it will return as soon as possible to the parameters of the constitutional order in that country,” says MAE.
