“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.
He made it clear that experts observed the provisions of the treaty between Romania and Ukraine on the state border regime, which was ratified in 2003.
In keeping with this treaty, in the case of non-navigable watercourses, the border is in the middle of the water table, and in the case of the navigable ones, it is in the very middle of these watercourses.
