President Iohannis: Stoltenberg’s statement confirms Romania’s objectives at NATO summit shaping up

Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis says the recent statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg related to a multinational brigade in Romania confirms the fact that the country’s initiatives and objectives at the ongoing NATO Summit in Warsaw will be found in the final documents of the meeting.

He also says the NATO summit will discuss important projects to Romania’s security.

“Today, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has announced NATO will turn a Romanian brigade into a multinational brigade to strengthen NATO’s presence in South-Eastern Europe and to defend against attacks coming from outside the alliance. The statement thus confirms that the initiatives and objectives advocated by Romania at this summit are shaping up and will be found in the final documents of the meeting,” Iohannis said in a Facebook post on Friday.
