BUCHAREST, Romania - Romania's president says his country fully supports Croatia's bid to join the European Union.
Traian Basescu said Friday after a meeting with Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor that Romania's position is not subject to interpretation. Kosor is in Romania on a one-day official visit.
Earlier this month Romania's foreign minister Teodor Baconschi was quoted as saying Romania might request that the EU monitor Croatia's justice reforms just as Romania's have been since it joined the EU in 2007. Baconschi later said his statement was twisted.
