NEW DELHI: Romania’s Ambassador to India Daniela-Mariana Sezonov Ţane in conversation with StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi.

Ambassador Ţane is adamant on “Romania condemning in the strongest possible terms Russia’s aggression, of a state invading another state trying to force a change of government, which is totally unacceptable”, adding, for India, “it’s no more a matter of choice. It’s a matter of principles, of international law, of respecting the most basic principle of the inviolability of borders. It’s necessary for India to take a stronger stance”
