PSD leader Liviu Dragnea announced on Saturday evening after a meeting of the PSD Executive committee that he urged Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă to ask the Foreign Secretary, Teodor Meleşcanu, to begin the steps for the ambassador’s post-call Romania in the United States, George Maior.
“I remember another request sent to the premier (at the CEx meeting of the PSD-N.R.), that Teodor Meleşcanu would start the recall procedure in the country of George Maior. You know the procedure: Foreign Minister-Premier-president, “Liviu Dragnea said in a press conference.
He argued that, from his point of view, George Maior should be recalled because he has a lot of explaining to do about the protocols with SRI.
“That’s what the prime minister asked for. If Minister Meleşcanu will consider it not appropriate (the recall of the major ambassador-N.R.), we will discuss it in the coalition, “Dragnea said.
According to the Constitution, the President of the country, on the government’s proposal, accredits and recalls the diplomatic representatives of Romania and approves the establishment, abolition or change of the rank of diplomatic missions.
Romanian ambassador to Washington, George Maior, former director of SRI, said on Monday, regarding the letter sent to Bucharest by the lawyer of President of US President Donald Trump, Rudolph Giuliani, to Romanian officials, In which he seeks to verify the secret protocols of SRI, that he is a “frothy and combative” character, he represents “the expression of a lobby initiated by certain forces” that will protect people in Romania with criminal problems.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) sent on Monday that the position expressed by the Romanian ambassador to Washington, George Maior was not approved at the level of the MFA or government, and an ambassador of Romania should be concerned “to represent Always the interests of the Romanian State in the state in which it is accredited. ” In this context, the Ministry stated that it would call for explanations by George Maior.
