IALA Interlingua is a naturalistic romance-based conlang. There are six control languages (primary: English, French, Italian, and Spanish/Portuguese counted as one language "Iberian"; secondary: German and Russian) to determine the vocabulary of Interlingua. Romanian is not a control language.

Are there any statements (e.g., by the IALA or by Alexander Gode) why Romanian is not a control language of Interlingua?

    I cannot find any statements by Gode or the IALA, but given that Interlingua is very VERY predominantly Western Romance, it seems likely Romanian was excluded due to the amount of influence the Balkan Sprachbund has had on it.
