Defence Minister Gabriel Oprea welcomes proposal of his Moldovan counterpart to establish joint battalion

Romanian National Defence Minister Gabriel Oprea on Monday welcomed the initiative of his Moldovan counterpart Vitalie Marinuta to create a joint battalion, and the two sides appreciated that this initiative could be a real support for the improvement of relationships between the two countries.

''We are welcoming your proposal to establish a Romanian-Moldovan joint battalion, especially because the Romanian Army acquired a valuable experience in this field through the activities carried out within the Romanian-Hungarian joint battalion and within the Tisa Romanian-Hungarian-Slovakian-Ukrainian engineer multinational battalion," said the Romanian Defence Minister.

Gabriel Oprea on Monday met Moldovan Defence Minister Vitalie Marinuta, who is paying a two-day official visit to Romania, accompanied by a military delegation.

Minister Oprea appreciated at the beginning of the meeting that now we had the prerequisites for the reconstruction of a sustainable relationship based on mutual ''trust," ''solidarity'' and ''aspirations'' after a period when bilateral cooperation relationships were put to the test.AGERPRES
