The Government endorsed by Ordinance, on Wednesday, the participation of the Interior Ministry (MAI), through the Romanian Gendarmerie, to the NATO Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Stability Operations, the Romanian Executive informed.
Through this participation, says the source, several advantages are created to our country in connection with the possibility to benefit from the expertise it has accumulated at NATO level in this field, from the civil crises’ management in post-conflict situations and from obtaining, for the MAI personnel, of some visible positions in the future NATO operations.

The Government informs that the nation-sponsor position of the Centre of Excellence brings Romania through the MAI a place within the Board of Directors, which coordinates the Centre’s activity, setting priorities and directions of action.
