In a press statement released on Friday, MApN says both sides highlighted the privileged nature of the bilateral relations between Romania and the US, namely a strategic partnership, pointing to the US constant support to the modernisation of the Romanian Armed Forces and US praise for Romania’s external operational commitments.

As far as the NATO Summit was concerned, the attendees highlighted the importance of coherent actions for the implementation of the decisions adopted at the summit, particularly the NATO stepped-up presence in the Black Sea region.
