On June 10-11, Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. Mr. Ponta aimed at "resuming the relations" between Romania and Germany after the year 2012 "brought a break in bilateral relations in the context of the political crisis in Romania." The last visit at this level took place in Berlin in 2006.
The two leaders discussed current bilateral and European issues and how to strengthen political and economic relations. The situation in Moldova - Transnistria was not mentioned in public statements - was discussed too. "I asked to be considered as the closest representative of the EU to Moldova, in particular, because the interest of Germany and Europe is to keep Moldova and Ukraine and other countries in the region on the European path," said Mr. Ponta, stressing "when it comes to Moldova, ask us, rely on us, because we would try to convince them to stay pro-European."
Mr. Ponta also had meetings with Baden-Wurttemberg officials in Stuttgart and with the Deutsche Bank leadership and potential investors. Recently, the German automaker Daimler announced an investment of EUR 300 million in Romania. Finally, the two delegations welcomed the "very good progress of the bilateral relations."
