President Mamnoon Hussain has said that bilateral relations between Pakistan and Romania are based on mutual goodwill and both countries share views on many important global issues.

The President said this while talking to the outgoing ambassador of Romania Emilian Ion who called on him at the Aiwan-e-Sadr, Islamabad on Tuesday.

The President said that Pakistan considers Romania an important country bilaterally as well as in the context of the EU. The President further said there is a need to exchange high level delegations between the two countries for furthering bilateral partnership.
