Israeli President Reuven Rivlin met with his Romanian counterpart Klaus Iohannis in Bucharest on Tuesday as part of a three-day state visit.

After the bilateral meeting with Iohannis, Rivlin said that "Israel faces continuous threats from Iran and its collaborators in Gaza, Hamas and in Lebanon, Hezbollah."

Iohannis said that "both the Israelis and the Palestinians have the right to live in peace and security," adding that his country supports "the two-state solution within the parameters of the international laws."

Rivlin is also scheduled to meet Prime Minister Florin Citu Tuesday and to deliver a speech in Parliament session on Wednesday.
