According to a press release issued by the Romanian Presidential Administration, president Klaus Iohannis will receive Victoria Nuland at the Cotroceni Palace on Wednesday, at 9 a.m. “Enhancing the US-Romanian Strategic Partnership and developing the economic part provided in the partnership,” reads the Romanian Presidency release.

Nuland will also have meetings with the Speakers of Parliament Chambers on Wednesday.

The press office of the Romanian Government informed that Victoria Nuland would met PM Victor Ponta on Tuesday at 11:15.
