BUCHAREST, October 3. /TASS/. The resumption of work of the joint Russian-Romanian commission on studying the history of bilateral relations is a reason for optimism, Romanian Foreign Minister Lazar Comanescu told Digi 24 TV channel on Monday.
"The fact that the agreement was reached to set up this commission, that it is resuming its work, should be considered with certain optimism," Comanescu said adding that this demonstrates that "there is place for dialogue." "I hope we will come to common conclusions," he noted.
"This means that both sides are ready to continue exchanging opinions on this issue and look for common interpretation of the events that happened, which will be followed, as we hope, by appropriate actions," the foreign minister stressed.
The 4th session of the joint commission took place on March 25-26 in Romania after a 10-year break. During consultations, the sides agreed to step up the work of the commission.
