Romania’s Ambassador to Pakistan Emilian Ion has said that bilateral ties between Bucharest and Islamabad are fast moving from cordial to excellent.
Speaking at a reception in Islamabad to celebrate Romania’s National Day, he said the forthcoming visit of National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq will further strengthen this relationship.
“I hope this visit will further help cement relations between the two countries,” Emilian said. “I met the speaker a few days ago and besides congratulating him on his re-election, I discussed with him his possible visit to Romania.” He added that Sadiq’s trip will be followed by the Romanian foreign minister’s visit to Pakistan.
The envoy said Romania had wholeheartedly supported Pakistan’s bid to get GSP Plus status from the European Union and assured that Bucharest would continue to extend similar support to Islamabad.
