The cooperation between the European Union and Turkey in terms of combating organised crime represented one of the main topics of the discussions carried out on Friday by Interior Minister Carmen Dan with Turkey's Ambassador in Bucharest Fusun Aramaz, who paid her first visit to the Interior Ministry (MAI).
"We discussed about the cooperation between Romania and Turkey in terms of home affairs, with an emphasis on combating organised crime, illegal migration, terrorism, but also the management of borders and emergency situations. Moreover, the cooperation between the European Union and Turkey represented one of the topics of our dialogue, taking into account Romania's capacity as the acting holder of the EU Council Presidency. It was a great pleasure to notice that Mrs Fusun Aramaz knows our country well, the Turkish-Tatar community, taking into account the collaboration that she had with the Romanian authorities when she hold the consul office," Carmen Dan wrote on her Facebook page.
On this occasion, it was reiterated the invitation for Turkey's Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu to pay an official visit this year to Romania, occasion on which, the cooperation priorities between the two relevant ministers be established at bilateral and regional level, the Interior Minister also wrote.
