The co-chair of the Alliance for Romanians Unity (AUR) George Simion announced, in the context of his travel the other day in Poland and Belgium, the party's affiliation with the "European political family of right-wing conservatives and reformists," which includes Polish, Italian, Spanish and British Conservatives, according to a press release on Friday, as reported by AGERPRES.
On Wednesday, Simion met in Warsaw with representatives of conservative governing parties, PiS (Law and Justice Party) and the Polish Solidarity Party, their discussions targeting the situation of strategic state companies, as well as the bill against Internet censorship.
"The Poles, through the conservative governing parties, but also through the common history they share with the Romanians, through the current interests they have in the region and through the future that we wish to be common, must be Romania's strategic ally in the area," the AUR release quoted George Simion as saying.
George Simion met with deputies Janusz Kowalski, Secretary of State in the Ministry of State Assets, and Radoslaw Fogiel, adviser to PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and responsible for the party's international relations.
"Simion gave Fogiel a map of Greater Romania, when Poland was a neighbour of Romania in 1918," the AUR release reads.
In Brussels on Thursday, the AUR co-chair had a series of meetings with conservative MEPs, discussions on the mobility package affecting Romanian carriers, the European Green Deal, which "will make the national energy system vulnerable, including by closing thermal power plants", as well as topical topics such as "instituting a vaccination passport" or "censorship by Big Tech (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube)".
