During the talks, the Romanian military expressed their disposal for the development of the new projects of civilian-military cooperation and the representatives of the Multinational Division appreciated the way of achieving of the already performed projects. “Because the missions performed by the Romanian military had a major impact within the reconstruction of Iraq, especially in Dhi Qar and Al Mutana provinces, the projects promoted by the CIMIC officer of your Battalion should be approved by the command of the Division” appreciated the British guest.

At the end of the talks, the participants agreed on the stage of reconstruction of Iraq, and stated that the civilian-military cooperation represents “a weapon more effective then the weapons”.
