Tomorrow, President Ursula von der Leyen will be in Bucharest, where she will participate in a high-level event on energy security and partnerships, hosted by the President of Romania, Klaus Iohannis, and the Prime Minister, Nicolae Ciucă. The leaders will sign an agreement on a strategic partnership in the field of green energy development and transmission between Azerbaijan, Georgia, Hungary and Romania. The agreement will bring the EU closer to its partners in the South Caucasus and help both regions through the clean energy transition, while also boosting security of supply.
Cooperation with reliable partners is increasingly important, as Russia uses energy as a weapon and manipulates energy markets in the wake of its war of aggression against Ukraine. In the margins of the event, President von der Leyen will hold a trilateral meeting with President Iohannis and Prime Minister Ciucă to discuss issues of bilateral interest.
