E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM PREL RO
SUBJECT: ROMANIA: ROMANIA RESPONSE TO CSW DECLARATION
DEMARCHE

REF: STATE 35769

1. Poloff discussed USG position March 2 regarding the
Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 2005 with MFA OSCE
and Human Rights Directorate Officer Nicoleta Birladianu
March 2.

2. Romania does not have an official opinion on the CSW
2005 Declaration at this time and does not plan to speak
during the plenary session. Birladianu noted that abortion
is legal in Romania, and the lower house of the Romanian
parliament recently approved a draft law on reproductive
health which upholds the legality of abortion in Romania.
Romania's view on abortion will most likely be reflected in
Romania's position with respect to the declaration.
