“The statements made by the mass media in Ukraine, according to which Romania is said to have territorial claims on this country, are totally ungrounded.
At this moment there is a joint technical commission at experts’ level, which is made up of representatives of the Ministry of the Interior, the General Inspectorate of the Border Police, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Transports, the Environment and Forestry and the National Land Survey Agency. This commission studies the new border documents that will come into force for the Romanian-Ukrainian border,” explained Minister Baconschi.
“Drawing the new borderline on water must be made in keeping with the present position of the main navigable channel as it will result from the hydrographic checks and measurements made by experts. The position of the islands existing in the border waters to the main navigable channel and to the middle of the water table can make one decide where these islands belong to, from case to case,” also explained Baconschi.
