Foreign Minister Eli Cohen spoke yesterday with his Bulgarian and Romanian counterparts about the importance of the EU designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, and stopping Iran’s nuclear program, the Foreign Ministry says.
With Bulgaria’s Nikolai Milkov, Cohen asks Sofia to increase its support for Israel in international bodies, including the IAEA, where it sits on the board of governors. During his call with Romania’s Bogdan Aurescu, Cohen asks for Bucharest to push for the IRGC terror listing, and Aurescu said that he would, according to the Israeli readout.
Aurescu tweets that the call was “excellent” and that he looks forward to expanding “political and sectoral cooperation.”
Romania and Israel are celebrating 75 years of diplomatic ties this year.
