NATO2022Bucharest / Bogdan Aurescu: NATO foreign ministers meeting in Romania once again proves unity and solidarity

Published on

The meeting of the NATO foreign ministers to be hosted by Romania on November 29 and 30 „will once again prove the unity and solidarity of the allies and will look for solutions to counter the effects of Russia’s brutal war of aggression of against Ukraine,” Romania’s Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu said on Thursday, according to Agerpres.

In a video message before the event, Aurescu said that this will be the first high-level NATO meeting to be hosted by Romania after the 2008 NATO Summit.

It is also the first event that takes place in a country on the Eastern flank of NATO after the start of Russia’s war against Ukraine.

According to Aurescu, the NATO ministerial meeting in Bucharest is „a very relevant meeting that confirms Romania’s role and profile in the North Atlantic Alliance and, at the same time, indicates the strategic importance of the Black Sea to Euro-Atlantic security, and therefore also to Romania.”

He added that it is also about a symbolic moment, two decades after Romania was invited to join NATO.

Aurescu added that Romania will also host the Munich Leaders Meeting on November 28 and 29, a fact that underlines „the importance and key role of Romania, at the intersection of two areas of strategic importance for European, Euro-Atlantic and global security: the Black Sea and the Western Balkans”.

„For three days, between November 28 and 30, Romania will be the diplomatic, European and Euro-Atlantic capital,” said Aurescu.
