Romanian President Calls on PM to Resign Over «Israel» Visit
Local Editor

Romania's President Klaus Iohannis has called on Prime Minister Viorica Dancila to step down over an "absurd secrecy" surrounding her two-day visit to the "Israeli" entity.

The president called on Dancila to resign on Friday, after her government approved a secret memorandum to move the country's mission in Tel Aviv to al-Quds [Jerusalem].

Iohannis said in a statement that the prime minister "does not cope with her position of Prime Minister of Romania and thus it turns the government into a vulnerability for Romania."

"That is why I call publicly for her resignation," Iohannis added.

She paid a two-day visit to Tel Aviv on Wednesday without consulting the president.

During the visit, "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked his counterpart for the efforts to relocate Romania's embassy.

The government of Dancila follows a move by US President Donald Trump, who declared in last December that his administration recognized al-Quds as the "Israeli" entity's so-called capital.

The Romanian president has strongly opposed the move, arguing that it would break international law. Under Romanian legislation, the president has the final say on embassy relocation.

Senior authorities in the eastern European country have been locked in a dispute over the transfer of Romania's embassy in recent days.

The "Israeli" entity has been controlling the eastern part of al-Quds since it occupied the area in the Six-Day War in 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.

Trump is pressing ahead with his plans to relocate the US embassy in the occupied Palestinian territories despite widespread anger in Arab and Muslim countries and objections from US allies in Europe and elsewhere who insist that the move could upend years of efforts to provide a solution to the decades-long "Israeli"-Palestinian conflict.

Trump's administration, however, has set May 14 as the date for the inauguration of the new diplomatic premises.
