Minister Dusa: Location of two NATO command and control centres in Romania, 90 percent established

Romanian National Defence Minister Mircea Dusa said during a visit to central Targu Mures on Saturday that the location of two NATO command and control centres in Romania as set at a meeting of NATO defence ministers in Brussels is 90 percent established, Agerpres reports.

‘We are, in the Army General Staff and the Defence Ministry Leading College currently analysing several locations and in a very short time we will make a decision with respect to the location of the two commands and will begin the works and measures aimed to commission them. I cannot state exactly yet, of course. We have decided where they will be at a rate of 90 percent, but I cannot exactly tell you until we examine all the elements and until we consult with our NATO partners and particularly with the military in the countries who are to come to these commands, namely the United States, Britain, Germany, Poland, Turkey. There are ministers we have already discussed with either over the phone or at bilateral meetings, namely their countries will send military to the Romanian-based commands’, Dusa said.

The minister was speaking in relation to a decision to immediately set up, in the territory of the Eastern allies – Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – several units for NATO forces integration, which are going to be multinational command and control structures of the North Atlantic Alliance aimed to ensure NATO’s visible continued presence in the Eastern allies’ territory.
