Abstract:

During the first years of the Cold War, Romania was isolated in terms of foreign policy, and forced to develop relations mainly with the USSR and other socialist states. During the de-Stalinization period, the East-West relations improved and Romania started to rebuilt its relations with the West, especially economic relations. This article briefly presents the re-establishment of Romania's relations with the Scandinavian states, in the context of the improved Romanian-West relations.    

 

Rezumat:

Relatiile externe ale Romāniei cu Occidentul au fost la īnceputul Razboiului Rece extrem de reduse. Īn acest context contactele cu statele din Nordul Europei s-au diminuat atāt cantitativ, cāt si calitativ. Dupa moarte lui Stalin si odata cu īnceperea destalinizarii, s-a creat o situatie favorabila reluarii si dezvoltarii relatiilor dintre Romānia si Occident. Īn acest context, Romānia va relua si adānci relatiile sale si cu statele scandinave. Īntre aceste state, Finlanda avea o relatie speciala cu URSS. Astfel, nu este de mirare, ca Romānia s-a orientat mai īntāi catre Finlanda, un stat totodata neutru, care putea asigura tranzitia de la izolarea Romāniei īn materie de relatii externe cu Occidentul, la relatii mai bune cu acesta. Articolul de fata concluzioneaza ca relatiile Romāniei cu tarile nordice īn perioada postbelica au fost direct determinate de o serie de factori precum: relatiile dintre Est si Vest īn general, relatiile Romāniei cu Vestul sau relatiile Finlandei cu URSS.
