Head of Romanian delegation to NATO PA: Annual session, most important since end of Cold War

 •  English

The 63rd annual session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly is definitely the most important since the end of the Cold War, head of the Romaine NATO PA delegation Vergil Chitac said Friday.

"The fact that Romania has organised this important NATO PA session three times over the past 20 years shows that we are trusted, volunteer and devoted members of the Alliance. But this example is not significant; what is significant is the action of the Romanian Armed Forces in foreign theaters of war, be it Afghanistan, the Western Balkans or the missions of the great frigates in the Mediterranean Sea or North Africa under the aegis of the European Union, to fight against pirates. The current NATO PA annual session is certainly the most important one we have organised so far or at least since the end of the Cold War, because it happens at a time when the NATO Alliance is deeply undermined and attempts are being made to destabilise, if not even destruct, the European Union. There are so many hot spots if we look at the global map," Chitac told the opening conference of the NATO PA session held for four days at Parliament Palace in Bucharest.

According to him, there is a clear picture of the security area in the Euro-Atlantic area, even of the world's security zone, which is at least as complex, considering that the spectrum of terrorism looms heavily at all times.

"The reports we are going to debate and approve inside the five NATO AP's working committees, as well as the themes that the speakers address in their speeches cover most of the major political and security issues facing Alliance at the moment. And that is the most important part of NATO AP's annual session, to which a less important part is added, as we will have elections for leadership positions within the NATO PA," said Chitac.
