SPP to train UN security staff

The United Nations security staff will train in Romania, at the Excellence Centre of the State Protection and Security Service (SPP), starting from October this year, based on an agreement signed Wednesday in New York. SPP said yesterday that its professionalism in assuring the security of UN high-ranking officials in theatres of operation abroad made the EU ask Romania to supplement its security details. “SPP’s training system was a true source of inspiration for the US Defense Security Service, which led to the proposal that Romania set up an Excellence Centre within SPP, so that UN staff working to assure security of high ranking UN officials could also benefit from this centre,” a release from SPP reads.

The memorandum was signed in New York by the head of SPP, Secretary of State Lucian Pahontu and UN Assistant Secretary General Warren Sach. The memorandum will be confirmed by government decision and the actual training of UN staff at the centre will begin in October this year.
