A few days before the start of the Romanian presidency of the European Union, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, the question was whether the country was ready. "Technically" Romania is well prepared, says Juncker in the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag . "But I believe that the government in Bucharest still does not fully understand what it means to the EU countries. To be wary to act, it is also necessary to be prepared to listen to others, and the firm will be there to the own points to the background scrolling. And that, I doubt it."

Romania became in 2007 a member of the European Union, and on 1 January for the first time, the hand over his responsibilities over of Austria. This means that from then on, for six long months, the European council will preside. Bucharest hopes that during his six months as EU president for a breakthrough to be able to make in several key files, but the brexit and the European elections will likely to have little room for manoeuvre.

The past few weeks and months there were already concerns have been expressed by the Romanian government. President Klaus Iohannis himself said a few months ago, but that his country was not ready for the EU presidency, but with the recent appointment of the experienced diplomat George Ciamba as minister of European Affairs is, according to Iohannis the "personeelscrisis" taken away that had arisen after the previous minister in november unexpectedly was left.
