Cu putin timp in urma cei doi ardeau de nerabdare ca Gaddafi sa vina cat mai repede la Bucuresti. Citez aceasta stire din noiembrie 2010 a carei sursa este agentia Agerpres:
“President Basescu expects Lybian president Gaddafi in Bucharest while Romania waits for Libya’s debt payment
Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi has argued that a rapid solution has to be found to Libya’s debt to Romania and said President Traian Basescu is expecting Libya’s President Muammar Gaddafi in Bucharest. ’I had a private conversation with my Libyan counterpart on the sidelines of the EU-Africa summit meeting where I reiterated our wish to reinvest in the Libyan market for infrastructure projects via Romanian companies. At the same time, I underscored that Romania’s President is still waiting for the Libyan national leader to pay an official visit to Bucharest,’ Baconschi told Agerpres newswire.”
Inca in martie, dupa izbucnirea revoltei impotriva lui Gaddafi, Basescu si MAE nu au recunoscut Consiliul National de Tranzitie libian, recunoscut de toti partenerii NATO, afirmand ca nu e credibil. Au facut-o in septembrie, dupa ce s-au mai gandit cateva luni.
