Foreign Affairs Minister Teodor Baconschi on Thursday received Ambassador of Serbia in Bucharest Zoran Popovic and told him that Romania wanted the ethnic Romanians throughout the Serbian territory to benefit from all the rights corresponding to the national minority status, informs the Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE).

The two officials discussed Serbia’s European outlook, the bilateral relation and the agenda of the consultations between Romania and Serbia in 2010, the future European Union Strategy for the Danube Region, the cross-border cooperation as well as Kosovo-related topics.
The Romanian chief diplomat appreciated the results obtained in 2009 by Serbia in the process of coming nearer to the European Union, informs MAE. Likewise, Baconschi reiterated Romania’s willingness to go on supporting Serbia’s European route, both from a political and technical point of view.

They stressed the need to intensify economic cooperation as well as the stimulation of reciprocal investments in the two countries, says the diplomacy institution.

Likewise, the Romanian dignitary voiced Romania’s interest in the development of the cooperation in the Danube basin, also by implementing some projects of common interest for the two riparian states within the drafting process of the future European Union Strategy for the Danube Region.
During the discussions, Romania’s position regarding the non-recognition of Kosovo’s independence was reiterated, based on the necessity to strictly observe the international law principles.
