Romania’s Defence Minister Mihai Fifor on Thursday attended the inauguration ceremony of the NATO Counterintelligence Centre of Excellence in Krakow, along with his counterparts from Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, as well as Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (DSACT) Manfred Nielson.
“This centre was set up because training and developing NATO specialists in military counterintelligence has to be provided in a unitary format. Romania will use every opportunity and will participate in the courses, seminars and working groups that will contribute to the definition of training our specialists in military counterintelligence,” Fifor says in a Facebook post.
He adds that he took the opportunity of his visit to Poland to meet with Romanian soldiers of the 228th Piatra Craiului Battle of Air Defence Battalion deployed with the US-led NATO Battle Group.
“I found them energised, determined, and I wished them easy job,” says Fifor.
