Romania stays fully committed to attaining the goals of the Energy Union, on Thursday said Prime Minister Mihai Tudose at a meeting with the European Commission’s Vice President Maros Sefcovic, according to a release by the Romanian government.
During a meeting at the Victoria governmental Palace, Premier Tudose and EC’s Vice President for Energy Union Sefcovic made an exchange of opinions on the current files on energy at EU level, which were also analysed from the prospect of Romania’s first mandate at the Presidency of the Council of the EU in 2019.
Premier Tudose emphasised Romania’s interest to actively contribute to the implementation of the EU strategy’s objectives on Energy Union. Moreover, the Head of the Executive expressed Romania’s openness for the energy dialogue’s enhancement with the EC’s experts, with the goal to optimise the identification of regional infrastructure’s priorities and the coordination of this sector’s cross-border investments.
“Romania remains fully committed to attaining the objectives of the Energy Union, and the completion of this bold project will be a core topic of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU,” Mihai Tudose said.
“Apart from several aspects regarding Romania’s specific situation in energy, the Romanian delegation’s members (Energy Minister Toma Petcu, Minister Delegate for European Affairs Victor Negrescu and state advisers Florin Vodita and Marius Nica) have stressed on the importance they give to the regional cooperation in this field, as it represents an important chapter in the new National Energy Strategy, which is currently under preparation,” the release adds.
