Minister Fifor Participates in the Polish-Romanian Governmental Meeting in Warsaw

The Minister of National Defence, Mihai Fifor, participated in the Polish-Romanian Governmental Meeting held in Warsaw on Friday, May 25th, as part of the delegation headed by Romania’s Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă.

During the governmental consultations, a ceremony was held when the delegations signed the Bilateral Agreement on the judicial regime of Romanian military graves in Poland and the Polish military graves in Romania. The agreement was signed by the Minister of National Defence, Mihai Fifor, and Minister of Culture and National Heritage, Piotr Glinski.

Minister Fifor also had a meeting with his Polish counterpart, Mariusz Blaszczak, when they discussed the good dynamics of the Romanian-Polish Strategic Partnership on defence, the cooperation perspectives within NATO and the EU, as well as aspects of the bilateral military relations.

They also highlighted the harmonization of the national positions with a view to the agenda of the NATO Summit in Brussels to take place in July this year. In this respect, Minister Fifor stressed the importance of the stability in the Black Sea region for the consolidation of the entire allied eastern flank in general, against the background of the complex and unpredictable security situation in the region.

They also pointed out the good relations of the Romanian and Polish military and the major contribution of the two countries to ensuring a credible presence for deterrence and defence along the entire eastern flank of the Alliance. In this respect they highlighted the importance of continuing the efforts to increase the level of interoperability between the allied forces by intensifying exercises in the Black and the Baltic Sea.

The two officials agreed on intensifying consultations on topics of interest for both parts, including cooperation in the technical and military field and defence industry.
