On 27 August, Estonia’s new Ambassador to Romania Ingrid Kressel Vinciguerra officially presented her credentials to President Klaus Werner Iohannis. At the discussion following the official ceremony, Ambassador Kressel Vinciguerra and President Iohannis discussed Estonia and Romania’s similar views on world issues, which lays the groundwork for mutual understanding and productive cooperation. In addition, Ambassador Kressel Vinciguerra congratulated the Romanian President on the country’s recent successful presidency of the Council of the European Union.
At the meeting, President Klaus Iohannis and Ambassador Kressel Vinciguerra affirmed the very good state of bilateral relations between Estonia and Romania, which involves cooperation in regional formats, for example B9 and the Three Seas Initiative. Since Estonia will be hosting the next Three Seas Initiative Summit in 2020, President Iohannis expressed Romania’s readiness to share their experience from successfully hosting the summit in Bucharest in 2018. President Klaus Iohannis and Ambassador Kressel Vinciguerra also discussed cooperation in security issues, European affairs and with eastern neighbours, where we share similar viewpoints.
„Our cooperation in the European Union, NATO and security policy in general, as well as similar interests, create many good opportunities to increase ties in cultural and economic affairs. Estonia is especially ready to share our experiences in digital and cyber fields,“ the Ambassador said.
