Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt visits Romania for talks on bilateral co-operation
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt will be in Romania today (1 February) for talks with the Romanian President and Prime Minister.
Jeremy Hunt will discuss areas of co-operation, including tackling modern slavery, hybrid threats, as well as Brexit and future relations.
It is the Foreign Secretary’s first official visit to Romania, where he will also host a discussion on media freedoms with local journalists.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said:
The UK and Romania are close allies on many issues, and that will continue when we leave the EU.
I’m looking forward to discussing, with President Iohannis and Prime Minister Dăncilă, how we develop our Strategic Partnership to help tackle security and hybrid threats.
While in Bucharest, I will also see an example of excellent UK-Romania economic co-operation with the opening of the London Stock Exchange office, making use of Romania’s productive services sector.
