Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg underscored Romania’s valued contributions to NATO in a meeting with Prime Minister Ludovic Orban at NATO Headquarters on Thursday (9 January 2020).

He highlighted Romanian deployments to NATO-led missions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo and to a multinational battlegroup in Poland, as well as Romania’s hosting of NATO’s ballistic missile site in Deveselu, its essential contributions to Black Sea security, and its commitment to spend 2 percent of GDP on defence this year.
