President Klaus Iohannis: Saber Guardian exercise - a special one

 •  English

President Klaus Iohannis said on Saturday that the Saber Guardian 2017 exercise that took place at the Combat Training Centre for the "Getica" Land Forces of Cincu, Brasov County, was a special one.

"I assisted to a very special exercise, both through its dimension and through its number of participants, as well as because participating here were Romanian, US servicemen alongside guests from several states, which made this exercise an international exercise, very successful in my opinion," Iohannis said.

He pointed out that the goal of the exercise is that of showing if several military units can work together, if the troops are compatible.

"The first response we can give now is: yes, they are compatible, they have worked very well together and everyone witnessed today the living proof that our soldiers are capable of fighting together," the head of state said.

Asked if these servicemen could deter Russia, Iohannis replied: "Of course they can, and I believe they are doing it."

He congratulated the commanders who led the units participating in this exercise.

"A very high level of training, professionalism, and it could be very easily seen: a special exercise through the fact that several armies have participated here. This thing hasn't been done in our country before. It is a first. The final assessment will be done by the military in the hours and days to come, but a first evaluation that can be done at this moment is that it was a very successful exercise. I congratulate everyone who has prepared, led this exercise and everyone who participated, regardless of their rank," Iohannis said.
