Romania's new foreign minister reaffirms Afghanistan mission commitment

romaniantimes.at

Rasmussen said NATO appreciates that Romania remains "an important ally and a strong supporter of the North Atlantic Alliance."

During the meeting, the two officials reviewed the agenda of the upcoming NATO summit in Chicago, scheduled for 20 and 21 May.

Diaconescu said Romania supports the objective of declaring the anti-missile shield defence capabilities as a priority during the works. He said that it is important for the Summit to "identify the projects aimed to contribute to the consolidation of the NATO military capabilities".

Romania is a supporter of "Smart Defence", NATO’s new strategy in coping with the budget shortcomings during times of financial crisis.

Recently, Romania announced it would maintain its forces in Afghanistan in 2012 and in the first half of 2013. Currently, the country has 1,940 troops in Afghanistan.

The Chicago summit will focus on the Alliance's commitment to Aghanistan through transition and beyond, ensuring the Alliance has the capabilities it needs to defend its population and territory and to deal with the challenges of the 21st century, and strengthening NATO's unparallelled network of partners across the globe, reads a NATO communiqué.
