A team comprising 5 doctors, 5 nurses and 5 military specialists at the NRBC (nuclear, radiological, bacteriological, chemical) from the Ministry of Defense flew this morning to Alabama where they will stay for 14 days. The mission of the team will be to assist the nursing staff, as well as to be informed about the methods applied in the United States of America.
Prime Minister Ludovic Orban, as well as the Ambassador of the United States of America to Romania Adrian Zuckerman, attended the departure ceremony and reaffirmed the importance of the strategic partnership, which is “stronger than ever” between the two countries.
Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu also received Ambassador Adrian Zuckerman last Friday. In addition to bilateral co-operation amidst the pandemic, the meeting focused on announcing the United States’ withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty, the Republic of Moldova, the Visa Waiver program, Romania’s accession to the OECD, and the prospects of the Three Seas initiative. According to Minister Aurescu, Romania “understands” the reasons behind the withdrawal of the United States from the Open Skies Treaty, and will ensure that there is a “single” and “stable” approach at the NATO level and that Russia properly implements the provisions of the Treaty./ibna
