We can respect each other's approaches. This was my main message - not to worsen the bilateral relationship for these reasons, because the past is the past, we have to look to the future, to develop our strategic partnership, which is what we want in Romania. We have been strategic partners since 2002, we have consistent trade exchanges, we have a lot in common in the region and we want to develop this relationship in a positive way," External link

If someone looks at Romania's policy as a NATO member and a strategic partner of the US in the region, on the Eastern Flank, at the Black Sea, one can notice that our Country Defence Strategy, the draft recently presented for adoption by the Romanian Parliament, is in line with Romania's previous Defence strategies and it is not uncommon to mark Russia's behaviour in the region. It is not only how Romania sees things, but this is also part of our analysis within NATO, the EU and it is a joint decision of the allies to remark that Russia's actions in the Black Sea region generate risks," External link

Bogdan Aurescu stated ( about Strategy ) : "Contrary to what the Russian media emphasized, we are not saying that Russia is an enemy state. I've noticed that this was a kind of mantra of the analyses and news articles in the Russian media, regarding our Strategy. We are only commenting on Russia's behaviour, which has been aggressive, in the past couple of years, and some of these actions violated the international law, the principles and norms of international law, a fact yet again obvious in the context of this positioning of Russia in the region and on the Eastern Flank, certainly that it attracts natural concerns on behalf of Romania and NATO allies. That is why NATO adopted several measures of defence and deterrence on the Eastern Flank," External link
