Minister for European Affairs George Ciamba says Bucharest is in close contact with all European institutions in the context of the London crisis after the rejection by the House of Commons, on Tuesday, of the Brexit agreement with the EU. He says he relies on the United Kingdom to protect the rights of European citizens.
“Really bad #Brexit. #RO2019EU is in close contact with #EU institutions. We will stay united. We count on UK to protect the rights of European citizens as already promised. All options are still open,” George Ciamba wrote on Twitter.
