Romania supports two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian issue, Prime Minister Emil Boc told visiting Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday.

"I once again reaffirmed Romania's support for the existence of two states and two nations living peacefully and securely together, without unilateral solutions," said Boc, stressing that it is the constant stance always advocated by Romania in the Middle East peace process.

"A solution negotiated by the parties involved is the only one likely to provide a real and solid basis for sustainable and proper peace," Boc added, calling for direct negotiations to be resumed as soon as possible.

Netanyahu arrived Wednesday in Bucharest for a working visit, which is the first visit of an Israeli premier to Romania since 1989.

According to Jerusalem sources, Netanyahu's visit in Romania is part of diplomatic efforts to oppose the UN's possible recognition of a Palestinian state. He will continue his tours on Thursday in Bulgaria.

The Palestinians are to ask the UN General Assembly to vote on the recognition of an independent Palestinian state in September.
