Romania’s main objective is finalising the strategic interconnection projects, said President Klaus Iohannis about the talks that took place at the Three Seas Initiative summit. The European Commission has repeatedly criticised Romania’s limited capacity to connect with its neighbours

”The Three Seas initiative will contribute to the economic recovery in the post-pandemic period, by developing connectivity between the states in our region,” Iohannis told a news conference in Bucharest.

Iohannis also spoke about the “economic and strategic importance” of the railway between the ports of Constanta and Gdansk, and the trans-European road route Via Carpatia. The US has recently announced it will finance the two projects that will link major ports in the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea.

“Despite the difficulties generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, I say we had a good summit, during which important progress was made, while outlining the main actions for the next period,” the president added. (Bogdan Neagu |
