Defence Ministry: Supplementary Agreement to Paris Protocol reflects Romania’s commitment to strengthening collective defence

The bill on the ratification of the Supplementary Agreement to the Paris Protocol, just freshly adopted by the Chamber of Deputies, reflects the commitments undertaken by Romania within the allied framework to strengthening collective defense on the eastern flank as the principal means to guarantee the country’s security, said the National Defence Ministry.

“Developments from 1952 to the present, the new transformations within the Alliance, the reconfiguring of the security environment have all made it necessary to adjust the provisions of the Protocol so as to meet the concrete needs of various host states in connection with the establishment on their territory of NATO command structures. Knowing that NATO military personnel is already present in Romania to fill the positions assumed by allies within the NATO Force Integration Unit (NFIU) and the Multinational Division Command Southeast Headquarters (MND-SE HQ), concrete situations arise the regulation of which require the coming into force, as soon as possible, of the Supplementary Agreement to the Paris Protocol,” reads a Defence Ministry release to AGERPRES.

The bill on the ratification of the Supplementary Agreement to the Paris Protocol between the Romanian Government and the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe and the Supreme Allied Command Transformation, signed in Brussels on December 2, 2015 cleared on Wednesday the Chamber of Deputies.
