Following the launch of the newest edited volume, titled “Foreign Policy and Romanian Diplomacy: A Century since the Accomplishment of the Greater Romania”, which was published on the occasion of the celebration of the Centennial of the Great Union and represents a joint effort of the Association of Ambassadors and Career Diplomats of Romania and the Romanian Academy, IRSEA’s President, H.E. Ambassador (p) Gheorghe Săvuică, presented the book individually to the distinguished Ambassadors in Romania: H.E. the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Mr. Salah Eldin Abdelsadek Ahmed, H.E. the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mr. Morteza Aboutalebi, H.E. the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mr. Safdar Hayat, H.E. the Ambassador of the Malaysia, Mr. Abdullah Zawawi bin Tahir, H.E. the Ambassador of the People's Democratic Republic of Korea, Mr. Ri Pyong Du, H.E. the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China, Mrs. Jiang Yu, H.E. the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia, Mr. Muhammad Amhar Azeth, and H.E. the Ambassador of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Mr. Dang Tran Phong.
The two chapters co-authored by IRSEA's President H.E. Ambassador Gheorghe Săvuică and H.E. late Ambassador Marcel Dinu showcase two illustrative moments in Romania's diplomatic activity. "Considerations on Romania's relations with the Republic of Moldova", in Volume I, provides an accurate description on the bilateral and brotherly relations between Romania and Republic of Moldova in the early '90s, a period that enhanced the unique relation between the two states. "Some Considerations on the Development of Romania's Relations with Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America in the Second Half of the Twentieth Century", in Volume II, addresses the catalysts that lead to the diplomatic advancements in Romania's bilateral and multilateral relations in Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
All visited foreign Ambassadors appreciated that the two volumes on foreign policy of Romania represent a significant contribution to the historiography of Romania’s diplomacy in the last century, which stands as a testimony of an intense, active and fascinating diplomatic activity carried out by Romania during the reflected period, including the so happily existing excellent bilateral relations of Romania with their own great countries, which are highly described in the second volume of the book.
