MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow supports Bucharest’s determination towards comprehensive development of bilateral relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Romanian counterpart Titus Corlatean on Tuesday.
Lavrov recalled that in July the two countries mark the 10th anniversary of the Treaty on Friendly Relations and Cooperation and in October they will mark the 135th anniversary of diplomatic relations.
“This is a good reason for assessing the state of our relations and their prospects,” he said. “We see Romania’s determination towards comprehensive development of relations and fully share such intentions.”
Corlatean said in turn this has been the first visit of the Romanian foreign minister to Moscow over the past four years.
“We want to confirm the Romanian government’s readiness for further contacts,” he said.
