Romania has decided to sign on to the G7 statement in favour of Ukraine that was made on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Vilnius.
As reported by the press office of the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a telephone discussion with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Romanian Foreign Minister Luminica Odobescu notified him of her country’s decision to join the declaration on “security guarantees” for Ukraine.
Odobescu and Blinken condemned Russia’s barbaric assaults on ports
Odobescu and Blinken also discussed the latest developments in the Black Sea, including the consequences of Russia’s decision to suspend its participation in the grain deal.
They condemned recent Russian attacks on civilians and river and maritime infrastructure in southern Ukraine.
Odobescu presented the measures already taken by Romania, as well as those envisaged in the short and medium term, to maintain transit capacity for agricultural products from Ukraine.
Who has supported “security guarantees” for Ukraine so far
At the NATO summit in Vilnius, the Group of Seven Nations reached an agreement on a framework paper on “security guarantees” for Ukraine.
The presidents agreed on the concept of the “security guarantees” but not the specifics; later, detailed bilateral agreements will be signed off.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, anticipates four to five other nations joining the project.
Since then, the Czech president has made such declarations.
The Nordic nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden expressed their appreciation for the G7’s commitment to Ukraine’s security and their willingness to help that nation’s long-term stability. The Netherlands also declared that it would participate in the project.
