Defence Minister’s meeting with the Ambassador of Canada

The Minister of National Defence, Mihai Fifor, received the Ambassador of Canada to Bucharest at the defence ministry HQ, Tuesday, March 20th.

The talks focused on the concrete ways to enhance bilateral military cooperation and within the North-Atlantic Alliance. The two officials noted the significant progress of the Romanian - Canadian relations and the favourable prospects in the development of the military relations.

During the meeting, Minister Fifor expressed the strong commitment to develop the cooperation between the two armed forces and thanked for both Canada’s substantial contribution in the air police missions carried out in 2017 in Romania and the decision to continue these activities this year, as part of the NATO plan to strengthen the Alliance’s eastern flank.

The two officials had an exchange of opinions on enhancing cooperation in the medical and psychological field, as the defence ministry intends to create a National Center of Military Psychology and Behavioral Health but also to train Romanian personnel in this field in Canadian military centers.
