Romanian Foreign Minister Aurescu said that achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and achieving tangible results at this year’s COP 26 meeting requires coherent and coordinated European action with the efforts of partner states and depends fundamentally on capitalizing on international partnerships with major strategic allies,  but also cooperation with other developing countries. He reiterated, in context, the importance of the US decision to return as a party to the Paris Agreement. Minister Bogdan Aurescu also stressed Romania’s support for joint efforts to strengthen energy security and resilience, both at EU level and for partners, including in the EU’s neighboring countries, with a focus on Eastern Partnership countries.

The Romanian official presented to his European colleagues Romania’s initiative regarding the establishment and hosting of the Euro-Atlantic Center for Resilience (E-ARC) in Bucharest. It will function, in the first phase, as a national institution under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and will be open to the participation of other EU states, NATO or partners wishing to join the initiative, to coordinate actions and good practices in all relevant actors.

During the informal lunch, the Romanian Foreign Minister welcomed this first exchange of views on the future framework of EU-UK cooperation on foreign and security policy, stressing the need for in-depth internal reflection on this framework, with the constant involvement of EU foreign ministers.
