“Romania is in an extremely complicated situation, on the one hand, for reasons related to the war waged by Russia against Ukraine, on the other hand, I think it is good to know that the Romanians and the Government of Romania are not standing idly by, they are getting involved , I work and, surprisingly for many, for me, naturally, Romania is doing well and the Romanian economy is growing. It is very, very positive news”, the president said at the meeting, where he was accompanied by his wife, Carmen Iohannis, and the Romanian ambassador to the USA, Andrei Muraru, according to news.ro

Klaus Iohannis stated that, regarding the crises we are facing in Romania, we are in a situation we have not been in for a long time, “it is crisis, over crisis, over crisis” and yet “we are managing”.

Iohannis recalled the support given by Romania to Ukrainian refugees, Romania’s contribution to solving the crisis related to the export of Ukrainian grains, stating that so far 60% of Ukrainian grains have passed through Romania.

According to the president, the energy crisis is a reality for Romania as well, stating that energy has not only become more expensive, but also more difficult to obtain.

“Together with the Government, we managed to keep prices at a reasonable level. We can guarantee the Romanians in the country that in the winter they will not have to stay in the cold and in the dark, even though the situation is complicated”, stressed President Iohannis.

“I wanted to describe these things to you so that you understand that we have a situation that, on the one hand, is full of difficulties, on the other hand, it is full of opportunities, and only the ingenuity and inventiveness and diligence of the Romanians make it possible in all these crises to still have, surprisingly, an economic growth. And, unsurprisingly, this innovativeness, ingenuity and diligence make you do well here too”, said Klaus Iohannis to the Romanians in the USA.

He stated that the war waged by Russia against Ukraine is the cause of the crises we are facing.

“I mentioned the war waged by Russia against Ukraine. It is the cause of all the crises we are facing, and the energy crisis, the food crisis and, to some extent, the economic crisis we are facing in Europe. It is completely unexpected, it is tragic that we have a war again in Europe and our hope is that this war will not escalate. Here you are somewhat far from these horrors, we are very close. Romania has, among all NATO allies, the longest common border with Ukraine and we believe that it is right, it is morally right, it is ethically right to help Ukraine, and we do it in all plans”, emphasized Klaus Iohannis.

Iohannis also referred to the strategic partnership with the USA, which turns 25 this year, adding that “and thanks to American support, Romania is in NATO”.

He stated that there are many companies from the United States that operate in Romania, but there are still, unfortunately, very few Romanian companies that operate in the United States, “but maybe there is still room for development here”.

“We concluded a partnership with the United States of America and other important partners for the development of nuclear reactors, but not the usual ones as we know them, but the so-called small modular reactors, it is a new technology, they are reactors that can be made in areas smaller and that can be used very flexibly. The first reactor of this type in Europe will be built in Romania, not in Eastern Europe – in Europe. It is a great achievement and we believe that in a few years we will benefit from this technology in a special way, namely that they will be produced in Romania to be used in other countries as well”, the president pointed out.

Iohannis stated that it is a cutting-edge technology and actually shows the great trust that the institutions in the United States have in Romania, being a notable achievement of this partnership, which, in his opinion, is still not talked about too much.

“And in conclusion, the best part of this Strategic Partnership is the people, without people there is nothing. The Romanian community in the United States of America is an extraordinarily important bridge between Romania and the United States of America. It’s you and I thank you!” concluded the president.
