Ioan Mircea Pascu, minister of National Defence during the Istanbul Summit together with the other ministers of Defence of the NATO members signed Monday, June 28, 04 the two letters of intention for the working groups analyzing the participation to the air strategic transport and the maritime strategic transport.

After the ceremony organized for the sign of the two documents the Romanian minister stated: “These are two NATO initiatives dating for a year within which the participating countries investigate the possibility to gather in common the resources they had for serving the Alliance’s interests and its actions. The sign of the letters of intention express our desire to participate to these working groups. After that we will sign a memorandum for our engagement with the real means. It is a very important moment because the Alliance will cross a stage when the developing operations will be deployed faraway from the members national territory, especially outside Europe and the transport capacity becomes very important”.
