President Klaus Iohannis considers that, through her statements regarding the relocation of the Romanian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, PM Viorica Dăncilă proves once again her total ignorance on foreign policy and also on taking important decisions of the Romanian state.
“Romania’s President, Klaus Iohannis, considers that, through the statements made today on relocating Romania’s Embassy to Jerusalem, Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă proves once again her total ignorance on foreign policy and also on taking important decisions of the Romanian state. Wanting to claim a decision that doesn’t belong to the Romanian Government, as she wants to leave the impression, Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă rushes to make public announcements without a decision in this regard”, reads a Presidency’s press release.
The Presidential Administration says that the stance of Romania’s President on this topic was clearly and repeatedly voiced and will not be restated now.
“The decision of relocating Romania’s Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be taken only after the conclusion of the analysis under way and only after the green light of all institutions of foreign policy and national security. The final call belongs to Romania’s President who is, according to the Constitution, the holder of the foreign policy decisions of Romania and representative of our country abroad. The Presidential Administration has not received until now the analysis repeatedly announced by the Government. President Klaus Iohannis is asking the Government and the Prime Minister again to prove responsibility in ruling”, the press release concludes
