Minister of Internal Affairs Carmen Dan has conveyed to the Romanian foreign affairs attaches accredited abroad, that they must be one of the engines that promote Romania's Presidency at the Council of the European Union.
Between December 12 and 14, a training session with the foreign affairs attaches accredited abroad is held at the seat of the Internal Affairs Ministry (MAI) within the framework of the activities for Romania's takeover of the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union.
"On this occasion, Carmen Dan emphasized the role that each of the internal affairs attaches to the promotion of MAI's sectoral cooperation interests vis-a-vis relations with representatives of internal affairs ministries or other law enforcement agencies abroad, in the competence area," a press release issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs sent to AGERPRES on Thursday informs.
At the same time, the minister called on the internal affairs attaches to focus primarily on the development of international police cooperation and foreign representation, with an emphasis on strengthening existing contacts and cultivating developed relationships.
"Our external agenda is already much more enhanced and it will probably be even more demanding in the forthcoming period. If until now, your mission has been substantiated on the operational need for police cooperation, your role will be considerably higher as of next year This posture implies that you should be connected to the priorities of the Presidency - both in terms of the general guidelines established by the Government, but especially on the issues of domestic affairs," said Carmen Dan.
