“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.
