Israel-Romania Working Group

(Communicated by Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
22 April 1999

Foreign Ministry Director-General Eytan Bentsur leaves today (Thursday), 22.4.99, for Bucharest, heading an Israeli delegation to the political dialogue between Israel and Romania.

This first in a series of planned meetings — within the framework of the joint working groups (political- security, economics and commerce, agriculture, crime) established during the August 1998 visit of Romanian Prime Minister Radu Vasile to Israel — will address all aspects of Israeli-Romanian relations and offer an opportunity for an exchange of views on the situation in both the Middle East and the Balkans.
