BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania's president said Thursday his country will be a loyal partner of Israel and NATO in the event of a conflict with Iran, but added that he hopes the dispute can be solved through diplomacy and sanctions.

"We hope that the sanctions imposed by the Security Council of the UN will create the correct solution in Teheran, not digging graves for American soldiers but starting transparent negotiations," said Romanian President Traian Basescu standing next to President Shimon Peres who is on an official visit to Romania.

Basescu told reporters if a conflict broke out with Iran, "Romania will be a loyal partner of NATO ... and a loyal partner of Israel." The two leaders earlier talked for an hour about a range of topics including Iran.
