The Romanian head of state, Traian Basescu, will make an official visit to Ukraine as soon as possible, Foreign Ministry officials claim, after the Ukrainian media reported that the visit will take place on February 25-26.

The first date was established during the visit made to Ukraine by the Romanian Foreign Minister, Cristian Diaconescu. Since then, the International Court of Justice has ruled in favor of Romania in the lawsuit for the delimitation of the Black Sea platform.

Ukrainian opposition, media and political experts speculated after the lawsuit ended that the Ukrainian state gave up its Black Sea territories in exchange for Romania's support in acceding to NATO.
