Bucharest, March 7 (RFE/RL) - Romania's Foreign Minister Teodor Melescanu has opened a two-day visit to Macedonia.
Before departing Bucharest today, Melescanu said his visit to Skopje
will round out what he called the process of "settlement" of new
relations between Bucharest and former Yugoslav republics. He noted
that Prime Minister Nicolae Vacaroiu recently visited Belgrade
(Serbia), Podgorica (Montenegro), Zagreb (Croatia) and Ljubljana
(Slovenia). Melescanu himself visited Sarajevo last week.
Of the former Yugoslav republics, Romania has the best trade ties
After the Dayton accords were signed, Romania announced that
political and economic relations with all former Yugoslav republics
were among its top foreign policy priorities.
