The marking in 2020 of 140 years of diplomatic relations between our countries takes place in a bilateral context that we can be proud of," said Iohannis.

Hans Klemm showed that during his four years in office, among his priorities were: promoting US national security in collaboration with its ally, promoting democracy and strengthening democratic institutions, supporting freedom of expression and religious denominations, upholding the state of law and the fight against corruption, promoting prosperity.
