In Romania, French, Dutch FMs sign agreement to boost ties


BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — The foreign ministers of France and the Netherlands paid an official visit to Romania on Friday where they visited a NATO battlegroup, and later signed an agreement to strengthen ties between the three countries amid Russia’s war in neighboring Ukraine. Catherine Colonna of France and Wopke Hoekstra of the Netherlands visited the military base in Cincu, central Romania, along with their Romanian counterpart, Bogdan Aurescu. Both nations have troops stationed in the battlegroup, which was bolstered in the wake of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, Romania’s neighbor. In the afternoon, the three ministers held trilateral talks in Romania’s capital, Bucharest.
