SEOUL, July 14 (Yonhap) -- Romania has agreed to launch a joint study with South Korea on its transition from communism to democracy, Romanian foreign minister said in Seoul Sunday, a move that may help Seoul figure out what it holds for Korean unification.

Romania ended its communist dictatorship by overthrowing the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu in a bloody 1989 revolution. Some draw a comparison between today's North Korea and Ceausescu's Romania.
