Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu is to visit Romania as the governments of the two countries could hold a joint meeting in Bucharest, the public television TVR reported.
Yariv Levin, Israel’s Tourism Minister, told TVR that the two governments should hold a joint session soon.
“I do believe that one of the things we should do in order to celebrate this symbolic year is to do what we call a G-to-G meeting, a meeting of both governments, of Romania and Israel. Since the last G-to-G was held in 2014 in Israel, it is our turn to be lucky enough to come here to Romania. This is one of the messages [e.n with which] I am going to come back to Israel and speak about with our prime minister. I think it is very important that we hold this. There are a lot of things on the table, a lot of cooperation that we should promote and such a meeting will be not only symbolic, but something that really will contribute to both countries,” Levin said.
Israel and Romania are celebrating this year 70 years of diplomatic relations.
Levin is meeting Romanian PM Viorica Dancilă today, May 17. Dancilă visited Israel this April, alongside Social Democrat Party (PSD) leader Liviu Dragnea, at the invitation of Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu. The visit followed the ruling party leader’s announcement that the Government approved a memorandum for moving Romania’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Klaus Iohannis criticized the visit.
