ForMin Aurescu: NATO's consolidated presence on Eastern Flank should take place as soon as possible

Foreign Affairs Minister Bogdan Aurescu said on Thursday that NATO's consolidated presence on the Eastern Flank should take place as soon as possible, pointing out that announcements made by US and French presidents also play an important deterrence role in the current security context.

"As far as the consolidated presence on the Eastern Flank is concerned, in my view, it should happen as soon as possible. It depends on a planning process that takes place at the military level, both within the North Atlantic Alliance, and in the relation with the United States, for example, if we are talking about the US presence, or in the relation with France, if we are talking about the French presence. These are decisions that must be materialized at the level of the North Atlantic Alliance. On the other hand, it must be said that this consolidation and these announcements that the US and French presidents made also have an important deterrence role in the current very complicated security context," minister Aurescu told private TV broadcaster Antena 3.

He showed that the announcements of the presidents of the USA, Joe Biden, and of France, Emmanuel Macron, are extremely important and represent "proof of the solidarity and the strong commitment" of the two countries for Romania.

He said he had a telephone conversation with President Biden's national security adviser, Jack Sullivan, and other colleagues on the Eastern Flank, under the B9 format, in which they discussed the preparation for the Friday meeting in Geneva between the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

"In this discussion we have reiterated the importance of consolidating the Eastern Flank, which is necessary not only in the current context, which is truly very complicated and for a long time, because this security situation on the Eastern Flank, in our neighborhood, has deteriorated over time," declared the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
