In the context of the multidimensional effects of the security crisis generated by the war of aggression unleashed by Russia against Ukraine, Aurescu stressed the importance of the energy field, where it is necessary to intensify bilateral cooperation, including by mobilizing ministries and companies.

“He also presented the efforts made by Romania to manage the over 1.3 million Ukrainian refugees who entered Romania, as well as the results of the humanitarian hub in northeastern Suceava, inviting the Emirates to use it. In this context, he also stressed the steps taken by our country to facilitate the transit of Ukrainian cereals,” according to the MAE release.
