A NATO office will be opened in Moldova

An office of the North-Atlantic Treaty Organization will be opened this autumn at Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. The representation will have specialists from different states who will advise and support the Moldovan army to implement the NATO standards and to cooperate with the NATO members.

The announcement was made on Thursday, August 20th, at Bucharest, at a meeting between Moldova’s and Romania’s Ministers of Defense, Anatol Salaru and Mircea Dusa.


“This office will employ experts from different countries, including Romania, which will have to help Moldova to prepare and adapt to NATO’s standards. The office will be opened in September or October. Moldova is a partner of NATO and thus, it is important to found a joint peace-keeping battalion in Iasi”, told the Romanian Minister Dusa.

Furthermore, Salaru declared that “Moldova is in a area of insecurity, warned by the Eastern danger” and that “it needs Romania’s support in the reform of the National Army, to improve the defense capacity”.

He confirmed that Moldova’s long term goal is to become a NATO member, even if the Constitution states the neutrality of the Republic.
