Romania's ambassador to the US George Maior said on Tuesday that he was being heard at the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) as a witness in a case related to indicted politician Liviu Dragnea's visit to the US, adding that he had a "very pleasant" discussion with prosecutors.

"I was heard as a witness in the case of a visit to the US by former Speaker of the Romanian Chamber of Deputies. I have wanted to come for a long time. [It was] a very pleasant discussion with the prosecutors. The case is pending, so I cannot give you details, but [it was]a very pleasant discussion," Maior said while leaving DNA.

Asked by journalists about his role was in organising Dragnea's and Grindeanu's visit to the US, Maior said: "No involvement (...). Mr Dragnea can say anything. The discussion as a witness was very pleasant. Tomorrow I will return to the United States (...). As a witness, you can say a lot about the context of a visit."

He said he never committed a crime and was "pleased" with what he told prosecutors.

Answering another question, Maior said that the secret protocols between intelligence services and anti-graft prosecutors were a good thing for Romania.
