Minister of National Defence Nicolae-Ionel Ciuca on Friday received David Muniz, who took over the office of charge d’affaires of the US Embassy in Bucharest.
“The two officials discussed the bilateral cooperation between the two states, as well as prospects for further development in the context of signing in October 2020 of the Roadmap on defence cooperation for the period 2020-2030. At the same time, the meeting was a good opportunity to address issues related to the current challenges facing the security environment, with a focus on the Black Sea area. Not least, the two discussed topical issues on the allied agenda, in the context of the ministerial meeting of NATO, which took place on February 17 and 18,” reads a press release of the Ministry of National Defence sent to AGERPRES.
Minister Ciuca underscored the importance of the Strategic Partnership between Romania and the US and the support of the Romanian authorities to further develop it, as well as of the strengthening of the cooperation within NATO and other international organizations.
