The Supreme defence Council (CSAT) has approved in the sitting on Wednesday, at Cotroceni Palace, the number of military to take part to operations abroad in 2019.

“As compared to 2018, the number of Romanian Army military will be by 305 higher, up by 11.8%. Thereby, the Romanian Army will participate with 2,098 military and civilians in missions and operations abroad, whereas the Interior Ministry will participate with 932 military and policemen,” a Presidency release informs.

The CSAT sitting was led by President Klaus Iohannis and was attended by PM Viorica Dancila, Defence Minister Mihai Fifor, Interior Minister Carmen Dan, Foreign Minister Teodor Melescanu and Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici.

Another topic on the agenda was the analysis and approval of Romania’s objectives for the NATO summit in Brussels during July 11-12, the Presidency also informs.
