Chief of Romania's Land Forces Staff Dumitru Scarlat said Thursday at the Cincu shooting range at the end of a Saber Guardian-16 military exercise that it is very important for Romanian troops to train together with NATO partners because every time they do so, they learn from each other.
"We decided to organise in 2016 the largest such exercise at Cincu. More than 1,500 soldiers attended this complex exercise. The fact that we are jointly training with our partners means interoperability and we have proved today that we know the NATO procedures, that we apply them and conduct excellent exercises. It is very important for us to train with our partners, because by doing so we learn from each other," said Scarlat.
He added that he appreciates very much this cooperation and the fact that Romania's partners have joined in training Romanian troops at Romanian shooting ranges, thanking them for what he said was excellent cooperation. Attending the Saber Guardian-16 multinational military exercise were over 2,700 troops from five full NATO member states (Bulgaria, Canada, Poland, Romania, the US) and five NATO Partnership for Peace members states (Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Azerbaijan)
