JUDGE Through
a UN vote, Romania’s former Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu has become one of the
judges of the International Court of Justice in The Hague. It is for the first
time a Romanian has obtained such a position and for the first time when no
Russian candidate has been elected. The UN success reflects Romania’s firm
commitment for the international rule-based order, Romanian president Klaus
Iohannis says. According to the Foreign Ministry in Bucharest, Aurescu’s new
position is a victory of the Romanian diplomacy as well as the recognition of
his professionalism and expertise. Aurescu, 50, is a member of the UN
International Law Commission and foreign policy advisor of the Romanian
president. Between 2004 and 2009, he was Romania’s agent for the International
Court of Justice and played a major role in the Romanian-Ukrainian file over
the maritime delineation in the Black Sea.






REPATRIATION 41 Romanian
citizens left the Gaza Strip on Thursday through the Rafa Border Crossing as a
result of the moves made by the inter-institutional crisis unit through the Romanian
embassy in Cairo and Romania’s Representation Office in Ramallah, the Foreign
Ministry has announced. They are to arrive in Romania in the following days.
The Foreign Ministry recalls that a group of 93 Romanian citizens and their
families arrived in Romania on Wednesday and the Romanian diplomacy is
continuing the dialogue with the Israeli and Egyptian authorities with the view
to easing the evacuation of the other citizens according to the latest
developments and the agreement of the parties involved.






TENNIS Romanian tennis
player Gabriela Ruse today takes on Mia Ristic in the first single match
pitching the women tennis sides of Romania and Serbia in the play-offs of the
Billie Jean King Cup in Kraljevo, Serbia. In the second single match, Cristian
will be up against Krunic. On Saturday, the Romanian will be taking on Ristic,
a match which will be followed by that pitching Ruse against Krunic. The
doubles will oppose the pair made up of Katarina Kozarov and Natalija
Stefanovic to Irina Bara and Monica Niculescu. Serbia has a 2-1 lead in the
head-to-head competitions and the victor will be playing in the qualifyiers for
the competition’s final tournament, whereas the defeated will go to Group 1. We
recall that Romania lost to Slovenia 3-2 in April and failed to qualify for the
final tournament.






RATE Romania’s
Central Bank governor Mugur Isarescu is today presenting the trimestral report
on inflation. The aforementioned updated report reconfirms the forecast of the
inflation’s downward trend in the following two years with an impetus in 2024
but slightly lower than previously forecast. So the annual inflation rate is
expected to increase at the beginning of the new year, under the impact of the
freshly raised taxes and duties and gradually decrease in the following
trimesters. The inflation’s downward trend is expected to gain momentum in
2025.
