EU Romania’s Foreign Minister, Luminita Odobescu is in Brussels to attend the meeting of the EU Foreign Ministers, the Foreign Affairs Council. High on the agenda are the Russian aggression against Ukraine and the situation in the Middle East. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba is expected to attend a video-conference. ‘We are vehemently condemning the recent attacks against civilians and civil infrastructure in Ukraine. And for this reason it is important to increase the military support for Ukraine’ – the head of the Romanian diplomacy said before the meeting. The event will also include an informal exchange of opinions with a series of Foreign Ministers from the Middle East and with the Secretary General of the Arab League. Also on the talks agenda are the latest developments in Georgia, Venezuela and Iran. “Georgia is a partner of Romania’s” minister Odobescu said in Brussels, underlying the need for granting support to this people and its European aspirations. After the Foreign Affairs Council, the Romanian minister will be attending the eighth edition of the “Conference on the Future of Syria and the region”.

FOOTBALL The return game in the playoffs securing a place in the Romanian Football Superleague between second leaguer FK Csikszereda and Dinamo Bucharest in Miercurea Ciuc, central Romania, will end the present football season in Romania. Dinamo has won the first match in Bucharest 2-0. Romania’s new champion FCSB will be representing this country in the Champions League; second leaguer and winner of the Romanian cup, Corvinul Hunedoara, will be playing in Europa League and CFR Cluj, the side on the second position in the ranking, will be playing in Conference League. The last matches in the domestic championship were overshadowed by the farewell game of the so-called Golden Generation of the Romanian football, which back in the nineties managed to get qualification for three world and two European tournaments.
