Bilateral relations

Parliamentary Relations

The years since the establishment of the bilateral strategic partnership (2003) have witnessed a progressive strengthening of Parliamentary contacts between UK and Romania. In addition to the many unofficial visits and meetings between representatives of the two Parliaments in the context of various international events, a series of official Parliamentary delegations have traveled to Romania and to the UK, thereby contributing to the strengthening of the bilateral ties and of Romanian-British cooperation in the EU, NATO and other international organizations.
