The importance of Romania and Poland continuing their dialogue based on the Strategic Partnership was a central subject of the talks during this Wednesday meeting at the Victoria Palace of Government between Premier Viorica Dancila and Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.

During the meeting, the two officials also tackled subjects related to the European agenda, with PM Dancila expressing Romania's expectations of getting Poland's support and cooperation in this line - with reference to relevant files such as the Multi-Annual Financial Framework, the Eastern Partnership, or the Western Balkans.

In the perspective of the second round of intergovernmental consultations between Romania and Poland - scheduled to take place in Romania this year - Viorica Dancila highlighted the importance of the full implementation of the measures in areas such as security and defense, European integration, foreign affairs, internal affairs, entrepreneurship and economy, innovation, agriculture and tourism, as agreed upon during the first round of consultations held in Warsaw last year, the government's release states.

Poland supports Romania's presidency of the Council of the European Union and is convinced that our country will also represent the Central and Eastern European states, Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz told a press conference on Wednesday alongside his Romanian counterpart, Teodor Melescanu.
Speaking about the country's presidency of the Council of the European Union, Teodor Melescanu said that Romania will persistently engage in promoting cohesion as a common European value, overcoming divisions among member countries and identifying ways to strengthen the role of the European Union.

"We welcomed our common approach in favour of a balanced budget that would keep the Cohesion Policy and the Common Agricultural Policy as key positions and policies of the future budget, while providing an adequate response to the new challenges that the European Union is facing in this period," Melescanu pointed out.

Jacek Czaputowicz brought to mind the Romania-Poland collaboration within the Bucharest 9 format, which includes the countries on the eastern flank of NATO.

"My visit also shows our commitment to working with all the partners in the European Union as well as the desire to find solutions that are acceptable to everyone and decisions that build the future of the European Union. This year we will celebrate 100 years since the diplomatic relations between Poland and Romania were initiated, and it is a symbolic point of reference for our actions," the Polish Foreign Minister said, according to the official translation.

The Polish official spoke about the support that his country intends to give to Romania as the presidency of the Council of the European Union.

"Poland will bolster Romania's presidency in accomplishing the important and well established priorities. We are certain that the friends in Romania will respond very well to these challenges, as a spokesman for the Eastern and Central European states that are an integral part of Europe," he stressed.

Czaputowicz also talked about the transatlantic partnership of Romania and Poland.

"This is what unites us in the foreign policy, our relationship with the United States and we see here a strategic element for the security of this part of the world," Czaputowicz said.
