Parliamentary Relations

Starting form 27 August 1991, when the Romanian Government welcomed the "Declaration of the Parliament of Georgia on the restoration of state independence" and expressed willingness to develop friendly relations and cooperation with Georgia, bilateral parliamentary relations have grown and developed significantly.

On 12 June 2014, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania announced that Romania does not recognise the so-called parliamentary elections organised on 8 June 2014 in the breakaway region of South Ossetia in Georgia. Moreover, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not recognise the constitutional and legal framework in which those elections were held and considers the “ballot” illegal and politically and legally irrelevant.

On 9 -12 February 2014, Mr. Davit Usupashvili, Speaker of the Parliament of Georgia paid his first visit to Romania, at the invitation of the President of Romania’s Senate, Mr. Crin Antonescu. Georgian official met with the the President of Romania’s Senate, Foreign Affairs Minister  and other Romanian officials. On the occasion of the visit in Romania, the Speaker of the Georgian Parliament attended the debate “From Vilnius to Riga” in Bucharest together with the State Secretary for Strategic Affairs Bogdan Aurescu, organized by the Embassy of Georgia in Romania, Aspen Institute and the German Marshall Fund.

On 10th of February 2014 the Senate of Romania adopted a declaration supporting Georgia's efforts to join the European and Euro-Atlantic structures. The declaration recalls Georgia's aspirations of integration in the European Union and the North-Atlantic Organization, initialing of the Association Agreement, including DCFTA, with EU and mentions the mandate of the NATO Contact Point Embassy, assumed by Romania in Georgia starting from 2013 year. The full text of Declaration adopted by the Parliament of Romania can be accessed here.

In this context, the Romanian Senate emphasizes the necessity of fully complying with the six-point ceasefire agreement of 12 August 2008. The Resolution adopted by the Romanian Senate calls on the Romanian Government to intensify multilateral, bilateral and regional cooperation for Georgia's integration into the European and Euro-Atlantic structures, ensure the extension of Romania's representation in EUMM, continue its support to Georgia and develop cooperation with Georgia in the energy sector.
