BUCHAREST - Romania's president Klaus Iohannis asked Prime Minister Viorica Dancila to resign on Friday after the government approved a secret memorandum to move the country's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and failed to consult the president on it.

"Mrs. Dăncilă does not cope with her position of Prime Minister of Romania and thus it turns the government into a vulnerability for Romania. That is why I call publicly for her resignation," Iohannis said in a statement.Romania's government has backed moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, drawing a warning from the president - who has the final say - that the move could break international law.

Under Romanian legislation, the final say on embassy relocation belongs to the president, who said he had not been consulted. Dancila also paid a state visit to Israel earlier this week and did not consult the president before leaving the country.
