Romania - NATO

NATO Nuclear Policy

NATO’s nuclear policy is based on the compliance with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) considered by NATO member states as the cornerstone of the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. All Allies are party to the NPT and support its universal coverage, full compliance with and implementation of, as well as all other relevant international instruments in this area, such as the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).
NATO’s nuclear policy is constantly reviewed and is determined by the Alliance’s nuclear posture and by the place nuclear capacities occupy in NATO’s deterrence and defence strategy. Nuclear weapons are an important element in deterring an eventual aggression against the Alliance, but their role is fundamentally of a political nature and they are not directed towards specific threats.
NATO faces currently a fundamentally changed, increasingly diverse, unpredictable and demanding security environment. At the NATO Summit in Walles (2014), Allies recognized the changed security environment and took a first step towards strengthening the Alliance’s deterrence and defence posture.
At the NATO Summit in Warsaw (2016) and also at the NATO Summit in Brussels  (2018) Allies emphasized their strong commitment to the full implementation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in all its aspects, including nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation, and the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
Romania’s position
Romania is committed to a world without nuclear weapons, in accordance with the NPT goals, and believes that the only realistic and practical way to achieve this goal is a step-by-step approach promoting international stability, peace and an increased security for all.
Nuclear disarmament is a clear desiderate alongside the need to address collectively and in an appropriate manner, the major challenges that we face today from nuclear proliferation. The NPT charts a clear and the optimal path, with no other viable alternatives. Romania strongly supports all initiatives and concrete measures for nuclear disarmament, in an inclusive manner and with the full respect of the sovereignty of all states, as well as of their security concerns and obligations.
