NATO will have a counter-intelligence unit in Bucharest, Romania, which will protect the two military commands opened here two years ago, Digi24 informs.
The Northern Atlantic Alliance has requested the President’s permission to set up this unit. President Iohannis sent the request in Parliament, with the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate to decide on it in the plenary sitting on Wednesday. The defense parliamentary committees have already Okayed the draft.
The counter-intelligence unit is to function within the South-East Multinational Division based in Bucharest. The counter-intelligence experts will work here to stop any attempt of information theft or of compromising the NATO missions in the region.
This year, NATO will have record troop deployments in Romania. Cutting edge military equipment and 25,000 soldiers from 11 countries will come to train in Cincu, Smardan and Babadag ranges.
