He also underlined the importance of Romania to relationships with CARICOM Caribbean Community, mentioning the first three technical assistance projects devoted by Romania to the Caribbean region in 2018 under RoAid. Also discussed at the meeting was the state of play and the prospects for multilateral co-operation, the role of multilateral diplomacy and the importance of parliamentary dialogue to promote multilateralism in the context of the priority attached by the Romanian presidency of the EU Council to strengthening the multilateral system, the observance of international law and fostering co-operation between the EU and the ACP.
