New UK ambassador Paul Brummell: Relatonship with Romania is a true partnership between friends


The new ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to Romania, Paul Brummell on Tuesday presented his credentials to Romanian President Traian Basescu, at the Cotroceni Palace.

After the ceremony, Paul Brummell said the relationship between Great Britain and Romania is a true partnership between friends.

'I am delighted to serve as British Ambassador in Romania, supporting the further development of the strategic partnership between our two countries. It was an honour to be able to meet President Basescu in a week that he will be visiting the United Kingdom for a crucial NATO Summit which will again serve to demonstrate the close alignment of views and strong cooperation between the United Kingdom and Romania across the security agenda.

The two and a half months I spent in the delightful city of Iasi learning the Romanian language ahead of my appointment have introduced me to the beauty and rich culture of this remarkable country, and I look forward to learning much more. From the thousands of Romanian students choosing to pursue their studies at Britain's great universities to the many wonderful British citizens involved in voluntary work across Romania to all those working tirelessly to build trade and investment links between our growing economies, this really is a partnership between friends,' the UK ambassador said.
