Ioan Mircea Pascu, minister of National Defence after the organization of the Informal Meeting of NATO Defence Ministers in Poiana Brasov between October 13 and 14, 04 received letters from which we are quoting here below, thus:
From Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, NATO Secretary General:
“On behalf of all who attended our recent Informal Meeting of NATO Defence Ministers, I would like to express my gratitude to you and the Romanian Authorities for being such splendid hosts in Poiana Brasov. The delightful setting, warm hospitality and excellent arrangements all contributed to what I consider to have been a most enjoyable and productive meeting.

I am well aware of how much time and effort goes into the organization of a meeting of this kind and would like to congratulate Major General Sorin Ioan and all the members of his Task Force who did an outstanding job.
Finally, I would like to convey my gratitude to the Romanian authorities for the provision of a Romanian Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft to take the NATO Headquarters Main Group of participants from Brussels to Bucharest and back.”

From Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense:
“You and your team did an absolutely job in arranging the NATO Conference in Poiana Brasov. Everything I heard from our fellow Ministers of Defense was exceedingly positive. Congratulations!

Romania is a steadfast ally in the global war on terror. I know it will come as no surprise to you that one of the special highlights of my trip was to have lunch with some of your soldiers who served so ably in Iraq and Afghanistan. We and the free world are deeply in their debt.
Thanks so much for everything”
