Romania joins US and EU's position on Ukraine

Prime Minister Victor Ponta on Wednesday reiterated Romania's message of taking a coordinated position with the political stand of the US and the EU concerning the situation in Ukraine, of condemning the terrorist attacks that killed so many innocent people, that the Russian Federation must be compelled to assume moral and political responsibility, and also a message of support for determined action by the European and transatlantic communities to punish those responsible.

'I wanted to send a very clear message on behalf of Romania with respect to what happened in Ukraine, a message of solidarity and coordination with the political position of the US, of our European partners, of condemnation of what happened in Ukraine, where so many innocent lives were lost in the terrorist attacks, of moral and political responsibility that should be assumed by the Russian Federation and also a message reiterating Romania's readiness to back determined actions by the European and transatlantic communities, so that such acts should not go unpunished,' the Prime Minister said at the government meeting.

Victor Ponta also added that he and Minister of Foreign Affairs Titus Corlatean sent a clear message according to which 'the European Union and our American partners can rely on Romania in these extremely difficult moments.'
