National Defence Minister Dusa meets NATO Secretary General in Bucharest

Implementing NATO Readiness Action Plan, the long term Adaptation Measures with a view to the Summit in Warsaw of 2016 and Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan were the main topics on the discussion agenda. 

 As to the progress in reviewing and optimizing NATO Response Force (NRF), ministerDuşa pointed out that Romania will augment and improve its contribution to NRF, also by identifying forces and capabilities for NATO's Very High Readiness Joint Task Force. 

 Romania continues the implementation of measures for rendering operational NATO Force Integration Units in Bucharest thus meeting the responsibilities of our country as Host Nation. We also have in mind the ambitious plan of putting at the Alliance’s disposal a Multinational Division, that will offer additional options for conducting allied missions on NATO Eastern flank. Further, Minister Duşa emphasized the need to review defence budgets and consider their increase. „Eventually, NATO credibility depends on the resources member states have, to ensure the military capabilities required by the complexity of the existing security context. 

 Romania is set firm on this track”, the Romanian official said. As for the need of a long term strategic adaptation of the Alliance, the national defence system has already initiated an inter-institutional process of analysis of our own contributions to this project. One of the proposals advanced in this respect was thatRomania should become a joint regional centre for training and exercises in the South-Eastern region of NATO.
