In the dispute related to the Serpents Island, both Romania and Ukraine but Romania in particular acted childishly: both refused to negotiate on the issue considering that they're stand is superior to the other, Bruce Jackson, one of the foreign policy advisers of the Republican presidential candidate in the US has declared.

According to the Regnum agency, the American analyst declared that things went too far and that he hopes that none of the two countries get the Serpents Island. The Romania vs Ukraine case started in Hague on September 2004 and was initiated by the Romanian party after negotiations failed.

Last months the two parties had the chance to publicly sustain their arguments and counterarguments. The Hague Court will rule a final decision, mandatory for both countries.
