The Informal Reunion of NATO Defence Ministers occurred February 9 and 10, 05 in Nice, France.

During the bilateral meeting with the US counterpart, Minister Atansiu mentioned the fact that Romania wants to re-orient its contribution to the international coalition efforts in Iraq, mainly aiming the support in training and equipping the Iraqi Armed Forces for them to be able to take their additional security missions. Atanasiu also mentioned that the Romanian defence industry is producing equipment that could be useful to the Iraqi equipping requirements and in this respect our country will have to coordinates its actions with the United States.
