These principles are further guided by the actions of Romania both in bilateral relations and within the framework of international organizations.
Hundred Romania reaffirms its commitment to the principles of international law, the promotion of mutual respect, good understanding, openness to dialogue and to the values of multiculturalism, which underlie its international profile and its external influences.
“The need for solidarity and deep respect for the principles of international law today, a few days after the incident in the Sea of Azov, is even more urgent. Romania will continue to resolutely support the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders, ” the ambassador emphasized.
