Klaus Johannis said, “We’re deeply committed to maintaining and strengthening the transatlantic relationships. We also want to increase the US presence in our region in all forms: military, economic, energy and political.”

According to the President of Romania, the country’s foreign policy has three pillars: Romania’s participation in the EU and NATO, as well as the strengthening and expansion of the strategic partnership with the US. He stressed the need to co-ordinate Romania’s foreign policy steps in the EU, to preserve the ‘reflex of European co-ordination’.
