  • [01] President Emil Constantinescu Supports the Ministry of the Interior

    Romanian President Emil Constantinescu said he would support the Ministry of the Interior to stop the interference of politics into police activity. Attending the official presentation of the Romanian police report on their activity, during last year, the Romanian President announced he would support, in his address to Parliament, the completion of the legislative framework needed for an efficient police activity. No one, irrespective of his or her position, political affiliation or relations, will ever get away with crime again, the Romanian President also declared. RADOR

    [02] Romanian-Syrian Joint Governmental Commission

    The Romanian government is interested in developing its relations with Syria, Romanian Prime-Minister Victor Ciorbea said on Tuesday, during his meeting with the Syrian Deputy Prime Minister, Salim Yassim. Also on Tuesday, Romania and Syria signed several co-operation accords in the fields of tourism, health, culture and air transports, as well as an accord between Youth and Sports Ministries from both countries, a cultural co- operation programme between the two Ministries of Foreign Affairs for two years: 1998 - 2000, and, at last, a co-operation accord between the Trade Chambers from Alep and Prahova. The Syrian guest, who participated at the session of the Romanian-Syrian joint governmental commission, said that this commission should have regular meetings, so that the bilateral relations can further develop. In his turn, the Trade and Industry Minister, Mircea Ciumara, appreciated that the number of signed documents is an evidence of the great Romanian interest for Syria. RADOR

    [03] Bulgarian Defense Minister Gheorghi Ananiev in Bucharest

    The development of bilateral and regional military co-operation was high on the agenda of the meeting in Bucharest between Bulgarian Defense Minister, Gheorghi Ananiev and his Romanian counterpart, Victor Babiuc. The two officials agreed on the need to create a Romanian-Bulgarian joint military force, which could become a multinational one, if the ministers of defense of the neighbouring countries agreed to participate in this project. The two defense ministers also pointed out that all their joint projects were significant steps towards NATO integration, an important objective for both countries. During the meeting between Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ciorbea and the Bulgarian Defense Minister, both high officials mentioned Romania's and Bulgaria's interests of promoting their common objectives of joining the European and Euro-Atlantic structures. The Bulgarian minister said that the two countries should support each Sther in reaching these goals. RADOR

    [04] Romanian Military Delegation Visiting Great Britain

    A Romanian military delegation, headed by general Gheorghe Bucsa, is paying an official visit to Great Britain. Our correspondent in London reports the aim of the visit is to develop the relations between the two armies as well the exchanges meant to train airforce and airdefense officers. The Romanian delegation is also to meet the British Defense and Foreign secretaries, the representatives of the defense industry and will visit British military bases. Romanian officials say the relationship between the two armies is excellent. The investment Britain will make in the Romanian defense industry in 1998 is much higher than in any of the three countries nominated to get NATO membership. RADOR
