Romanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Cristian Diaconescu and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodimir Ogryzko told a news conference on Friday (Jan 23) that they would observe the ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on delimiting the continental shelf in the Black Sea, which will be made public on February 3.
 
"It is out of the question for us to speculate in this respect. I want to point to one single aspect: it will be a ruling that will be applied and it devolves on the political factor to focus on more important bilateral regional and international questions, which are now positive arguments in the relationship with Ukraine," said Cristian Diaconescu answering a journalist who asked him about Romania's reaction depending on the nature of the ICJ ruling.
 
In his turn Volodimir Ogryzko voiced conviction that The Hague ruling "will be the foundation of the further development of the Ukrainian-Romanian relations."
"Both Ukraine and Romania are countries on the Black Sea shore and will go on cooperating. Today we are mere neighbours, in the future we shall be EU members and will build our relations in this respect," said Ogryzko.
 
The visit of Minister Diaconescu to Kiev takes place shortly before the International Court of Justice in The Hague makes public on February 3 its ruling on the maritime delimitation in the Black Sea in the lawsuit between Romania and Ukraine. Cristian Diaconescu said he was optimistic about the ICJ solution.
