Bratislava (18 November) – Miroslav Lajčák, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, received the new Foreign Minister of Romania, Lazar Comanescu, in Bratislava on Wednesday night. Comanescu was appointed to his office on Tuesday and Slovakia was the first country he visited in his position as the head of Romanian diplomacy.

Minister Comanescu is a member of the new government of technocrats that was approved by the Romanian Parliament this week.

Minister Lajčák congratulated Minister Comanescu on his appointment and appreciated the high standard of Slovak-Romanian cooperation to this point in time. An expression of the quality of our relations, inter alia, is the current visit by Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to Slovakia and the address delivered by Minister Lajčák at the September annual meeting of Romanian ambassadors in Bucharest.

During the discussion with his counterpart, Minister Lajčák focused on timely European topics such as the response to the Paris terrorist attacks, the crisis in Ukraine, migration and energy. He also informed his partner about Slovakia’s decision to send a shipment of medical supplies to Romania to assist in the treatment and care needed by persons who suffered injuries in the tragic fire in a Bucharest night club last month.
