Teodor Meleşcanu said : "At the end of the meeting [ed.n. - in Vienna], the Swiss ambassador, who was also the president of the works, officially asked the Romanian delegation for information regarding the situation in Timisoara. As I, first secretary, was the only one left in the room from the Romanian delegation, I said the following: I did not receive any information from the country regarding the events in Timisoara. I saw from the foreign press that clashes took place between the army and the protesters, which resulted in loss of human lives. I finally said that if the information is confirmed, then those who have been guilty must take responsibility," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu mentioned : "When we speak of hybrid war we must take into consideration several elements. The first - and maybe the most important - is the consolidation of resilience of all countries from this angle. Surely, NATO is the larger organization, which ensures our security, but everyone must contribute and I am proud, as chairman of the Senate, to say that Romania made a very wise decision, by consensus of all political parties, to allot a percentage of the state budget to the military domain. We have as a target to continue this policy for a period of at least ten years. A second important thing: we must focus on cyberdefence. The third element, which is also important, relates to the strategic communication. We must understand that wars now start in the hearts and minds of people, and that is why strategic communication is very important," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu stated : "First of all, I want to thank all those who voted me and I want to give assurances to those who didn’t vote me or who even attacked me, that I will be a balanced President. I lay my age, experience and integrity in the service of Parliament, my objective being to regain the citizens’ respect and confidence in this institution. In the various offices I’ve held over time, that haven’t been a few, I had the privilege of working with all the Romanian political spectrum over the past 30 years. There is an experience that I put at the disposal of the Romanian people unconditionally. Moreover, in all my political activity I have served my country, my people and never the interests of the politicians of the moment," External link

I have the firm belief that in politics, the citizen’s vote should be decisive and not the shell games in the interest of some people. Dear colleagues, I have told you and I repeat it, any responsible politician should have the motto ’Let’s do as much as possible for as many as possible.’ In the beginning of the speech, I have promised my balance and now, in conclusion, I ask all the support to make from Romania’s Parliament an elite institution in the Romanian democratic system," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu says : "Diplomacy is more of an art than a profession, it is an area where our everyday efforts are rather scarcely mediatized, just like the appreciation and respect we enjoy as Romanian diplomats in our contacts with international partners. My term ends at a time when Romanian diplomacy enjoys a very high level of trust, international recognition and respect, which I felt in all the meetings I had with Romania’s international partners. This is the legacy I have always wanted to leave behind my diplomatic activity and the highest form of evaluation for a diplomat," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu said : "These successes are all the more satisfactory to me as they represent the pinnacle of the efforts we put into promoting valuable and young people, capable of securing the future of Romanian diplomacy. I strongly believe in this future, and my optimism relies on the complete success of Romania’s term at the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, a European maturity test successfully passed, which has led to the assertion of Romanian diplomacy on the regional and international stage as an elite corps that deserves the respect and admiration of Romania’s partners. I wish that the young diplomats continue to believe in the mission that has been entrusted to them, aware that they are the present embodiment and hope for the future of a diplomatic tradition with an illustrious history. The desire to promote worthy young professionals was based on the belief that it is our duty, of those who carry the burden of a long and rich career experience, to use this experience in order to embolden those in whom we see the future. I wanted this approach to mark my ministerial term and I am proud of the professional achievements of the ones I promoted. Even if my term is over, I remain deeply grateful for their collaboration and wish them to stay confident in their capabilities," External link

Our conversation very clearly revealed that there are much larger, unexplored opportunities for economic co-operation, as the potential of the economies of the two countries is special. I told Deputy Prime Minister Al Thani about the importance Romania attaches to business-to-business contacts, both through the use of existing dialogue platforms and by organising special events to promote investment and engagement in various joint projects. We have also noticed with great satisfaction a potential for successful collaboration in niche areas such as information technology and communications, renewable power, environmental protection and preservation, education, research and medicine," External link

The European approach and tools are very different from those used by NATO (...)

Teodor Meleşcanu said ( about Electoral Authority ) : "In general, everyone has focused on embassies and consulates, depending on how these institutions were located, and then there was obviously a very large gap between polling stations that are probably not known by everyone. Big crowding there is at embassies and consulates. (...) What we can do - first of all to inform the Permanent Electoral Authority (AEP) about these requests [extension of the program]. If the Authority considers it to be part of the letter of law, we believe that measures can be taken very fast. As far as I know, there are some very clear provisions in the electoral law stipulating all polling stations close at 21:00hrs. Obviously, there is the possibility of adopting another decision, we have nothing against implementing it immediately. A second measure we can adopt is to allow people who, even if they have not entered the polling stations until 21:00hrs, but are waiting inside the embassy, in the yard somewhere, to continue to express their vote in the coming period. So these are the two possibilities," External link

The second guideline is improving the social inclusion of all children, especially those from rural areas, Romany families and poor communities as well as children with disabilities. The third element is improving the capacity of the central administration of drawing up, implementing and assessing policies that promote respect for and the realisation of the children’s rights, including strengthening key partnerships aimed at increasing national commitment to children and social reforms.

Our common priority should be to build a strong political consensus between the European and US leaders on security topics, which we must solve together. Of a coherent manner, the operations must reflect on all levels, in concrete activities.

Central Asia, as a region, and each country individually have undergone tremendous changes over the last decades and new opportunities are opening up for them. Opportunities come with challenges and threats either new or old ones. The world in which we live is changing and, at the same time, becoming more connected.

Indeed, the Deveselu facility is one of the pillars of the missile defence at NATO level, and it will be replicated with certain installations in Poland by using ships that have the same capacity. So, it is simply defence we have at the level of NATO and toward which Romania also participates as a member of the alliance. Obviously, these are things that will have to (...) be clearly stated and I am convinced that they will be supported by all NATO member states," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu stated : "Today, it was a special moment, in which our colleagues representing Greece and the Republic of North Macedonia, for the first time, have sat at the same table and came together, on the same idea, regarding the development and growth, the creation of some necessary conditions for the Western Balkans countries to join the European Union. After signing this agreement, I am convinced that there will be an accession invitation for the Republic of North Macedonia, but a second thing, which I want to underscore is that the signing of this agreement proved, even in difficult conditions, with a complicated history, that when there is a wish to find political solutions to political issues then miracles can truly be pulled off. Who would have imagined a few years ago, when it was practically one of the largest debates at the Western Balkans level, that it will come to this situation. We all commended and hope to continue to also produce a synergic effect on other countries that are negotiating in the Western Balkans on the same topics," External link

They are practically contributing, in a very direct manner, to the well-being and to the economic and social development of the United Kingdom.

Teodor Meleşcanu mentioned : "When we speak of hybrid war we must take into consideration several elements. The first - and maybe the most important - is the consolidation of resilience of all countries from this angle. Surely, NATO is the larger organization, which ensures our security, but everyone must contribute and I am proud, as chairman of the Senate, to say that Romania made a very wise decision, by consensus of all political parties, to allot a percentage of the state budget to the military domain. We have as a target to continue this policy for a period of at least ten years. A second important thing: we must focus on cyberdefence. The third element, which is also important, relates to the strategic communication. We must understand that wars now start in the hearts and minds of people, and that is why strategic communication is very important," External link

I lay my age, experience and integrity in the service of Parliament, my objective being to regain the citizens’ respect and confidence in this institution. In the various offices I’ve held over time, that haven’t been a few, I had the privilege of working with all the Romanian political spectrum over the past 30 years. There is an experience that I put at the disposal of the Romanian people unconditionally. Moreover, in all my political activity I have served my country, my people and never the interests of the politicians of the moment," External link

I have the firm belief that in politics, the citizen’s vote should be decisive and not the shell games in the interest of some people. Dear colleagues, I have told you and I repeat it, any responsible politician should have the motto ’Let’s do as much as possible for as many as possible.’ In the beginning of the speech, I have promised my balance and now, in conclusion, I ask all the support to make from Romania’s Parliament an elite institution in the Romanian democratic system," External link

This creed represents a lasting gain the issues and obstacles arisen over time cannot wipe out," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu says : "Diplomacy is more of an art than a profession, it is an area where our everyday efforts are rather scarcely mediatized, just like the appreciation and respect we enjoy as Romanian diplomats in our contacts with international partners. My term ends at a time when Romanian diplomacy enjoys a very high level of trust, international recognition and respect, which I felt in all the meetings I had with Romania’s international partners. This is the legacy I have always wanted to leave behind my diplomatic activity and the highest form of evaluation for a diplomat," External link

Teodor Meleşcanu said : "These successes are all the more satisfactory to me as they represent the pinnacle of the efforts we put into promoting valuable and young people, capable of securing the future of Romanian diplomacy. I strongly believe in this future, and my optimism relies on the complete success of Romania’s term at the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, a European maturity test successfully passed, which has led to the assertion of Romanian diplomacy on the regional and international stage as an elite corps that deserves the respect and admiration of Romania’s partners. I wish that the young diplomats continue to believe in the mission that has been entrusted to them, aware that they are the present embodiment and hope for the future of a diplomatic tradition with an illustrious history. The desire to promote worthy young professionals was based on the belief that it is our duty, of those who carry the burden of a long and rich career experience, to use this experience in order to embolden those in whom we see the future. I wanted this approach to mark my ministerial term and I am proud of the professional achievements of the ones I promoted. Even if my term is over, I remain deeply grateful for their collaboration and wish them to stay confident in their capabilities," External link

If the Authority considers it to be part of the letter of law, we believe that measures can be taken very fast. As far as I know, there are some very clear provisions in the electoral law stipulating all polling stations close at 21:00hrs. Obviously, there is the possibility of adopting another decision, we have nothing against implementing it immediately. A second measure we can adopt is to allow people who, even if they have not entered the polling stations until 21:00hrs, but are waiting inside the embassy, in the yard somewhere, to continue to express their vote in the coming period.
