DefMin Motoc: Turkey, one of Romania’s most important regional partners

Defence Minister Mihnea Motoc met his Turkish counterpart Ismet Yilmaz on Thursday in Ankara; the Romanian official confirmed Turkey’s special role as a strategic partner and “one of the most important cooperation partners of Romania in the region,” the National Defence Ministry informed in a release to Agerpres.

The document mentions that the privileged relation between the two states allows a harmonized articulation of shared interest in ensuring regional stability and security.

“The talks approached topics of cooperation in the allied framework, with focus on the preparation of the NATO Summit in Warsaw. (…) Minister Motoc pointed out the need of concentrating efforts to consolidate the allied presence on the eastern flank and the support to the adaptation of NATO’s strategic stance. In this context, the two officials agreed on the possibilities of bilateral and regional cooperation to manage the evolving risks and threats in the Black Sea extended region,” the ministry detailed.

According to the media release, both sides emphasized during the talks the need of consolidating the bilateral cooperation in defence, in the “highly volatile and complex” current security environment.
