Romania's Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu on Monday attended a videoconference of the European Union's Foreign Affairs Council (FAC), underscoring the need for a strategic vision on the Eastern Partnership (EaP) and an ambitious post-2020 agenda.
"You can produce a piece of fake news in five minutes, but it takes a few hours or a few days to debunk it." Exposing disinformation and misinformation is a difficult task that requires "meticulous, investigative, time-consuming work," and requires it be presented "without boring [audiences] and without spreading propaganda yourself," Voicu elaborates.
European Union leaders will discuss the coronavirus pandemic, vaccine deliveries, and the delicate state of relations with both Turkey and Russia in a virtual two-day summit starting on March 25.
U.S. President Joe Biden will also attend the meeting to discuss transatlantic cooperation with EU leaders.
Foreign Affairs Minister Bogdan Aurescu pleaded for strengthening NATO's deterrence and defence posture on the entire Eastern Flank on the second day of the meeting of foreign ministers from NATO member states.
