Official representatives of the Russian Federation have agreed to support the Romanian-Russian joint commission for the history of the bilateral relations - the issue of the (Romanian) treasure included - to resume works, hoping this to contribute to strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries, the head of the Romanian Senate's Foreign Affairs Committee Petru Filip told AGERPRES.
'Both countries feel the need of restoring confidence between them, which confidence was lost in the past few years. And one of the solutions to this problem could be the two countries accepting to make some mutual gestures, among which the one related to the Romania-Russia joint commission on the recovery of the Romanian Treasure from Moscow being allowed to resume works. The Prime Vice President of the Federation Council, Senator Alexander Torshin, agreed with the Commission resuming works as a sign of the desire for rapprochement between the two countries. The invitation extended to the Prime Vice President of the Council, Senator Torshin, and also to the President of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Federation Council of Russia, Senator Mikhail Margelov, was already accepted, following to be honoured in next year's spring', said the PSD Senator.
A delegation of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Romanian Senate, headed by Senator Petru Filip, paid an official visit on Tuesday to the Russian Federation, answering thus to an invitation addressed to him by the President of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Vitalievich Margelov.
