Romania's foreign minister Adrian Cioroianu said after yesterday's meeting with the Ukrainian foreign minister Volodomir Orizko that the matters related to Snakes Island were to be "politicized" in no way. He argued: "These are matters for experts. President Yushchenko's visit to Bucharest was a success. We wish the same for the Romanian President's visit to Ukraine."
As for the Romanian minority in Ukraine, minister Cioroianu said it hadn't been on the agenda of his meeting with the Ukrainian minister.
The Romanian minister attended the reunion of foreign affairs ministers in EU and Black Sea states, which housed the official launch of the Black Sea Synergy and the start of projects to implement it. (...) (D.E.)
