Bucharest, July 14 /Agerpres/ - Romania is a steady and trustworthy ally, stated on Friday the Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (CMC), General Petr Pavel, commending our countrys contribution to the sharing of responsibilities within the North Atlantic Alliance, both through the allocation of 2 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for defence, and the participation in military operations and missions.
I appreciate Romanias role in NATO as a steady and trustworthy ally. Romania not only contributes to the sharing of responsibilities through the allocation of 2 percent (of the GDP, ed. n.) to Defence, which is undoubtedly, a significant contribution, but has an equally important participation in NATO operations and missions, General Petr Paul specified at a conference in Bucharest, in the context of his visit to Romania.
He mentioned in this respect the mission in Afghanistan and Kosovo, but also the permanent naval groups in which our country has a significant participation.
Romania has an important role in ensuring security on all three components - land, air and maritime. Moreover, Romania hosts an important U.S. objective, the anti-missile shield at Deveselu. Last but not least, your country participates in a lot of exercises, and the one taking place in this period - the Saber Guardian - is just one example. These exercises are crucial to NATOs deterrence and defence strategy. In this way, it is clear to every adversary that NATO will defend all its members in the event of an attack, said General Pavel.
Asked about the exercises that Russia is also conducting these days, NATO CMC Chairman stated that we are facing "a problem of transparency" here.
All countries, Russia included, have the right to organise exercises. Including what we call unannounced exercises. A major problem is how they approach transparency. NATO observes the rules imposed in the Vienna process, which means that any exercise that will be organised with more than 9,000 soldiers will be announced and observers will participate when the exercise exceeds 30,000 soldiers. Unfortunately, we do not see Russia observing the same transparency line. We have made some progress in our joint dialogue with Russia and we have set up communication through our mutual briefings on the exercises we will organise. Yesterday (Thursday, ed. n.), all NATO ambassadors were notified by Russia about the organisation of the exercise, General Petr Pavel specified.AGERPRES(RO - author: Ana-Maria Ludatser, editor: Andreea Rotaru; EN - author: Simona Iacob, editor: Maria Voican)
