500 Romanian and allied military have participated in the Dacian Strike 24 exercise, led by the Headquarters Multinational Division South-east. The exercise was simultaneously carried in the target ranges of Smardan, Galati County, in the east, Capul Midia in Constanta County, in the south-east, and in Novo Selo, Bulgaria.

Taking part in the training were military of the South-East Multinational Brigade, The American 82 Airborne Division and NATO Combat Group in Romania. Also included in the exercise were the French Brigade’s Forward Element stationed in our country, the 52 Artillery Regiment and the 282 Armoured Brigade.

Involved in the exercise were IAR 99 Șoim, IAR 330 Puma Socat aircrafts of the 95 Airbase as well as Eurofighter Typhoon British Fighter jets.

Canadian Lieutenant-colonel Kris Callaerts of the Headquarters Multinational Division South-east has stated that “Dacian Strike 24 has proved that the allied troops stationed in this part of Europe are a deterrent for any potential enemy”.

Against the backdrop of NATO’s Forward Presence in the allied Eastern Flank, the Headquarters Multinational Division South-east, for more than two and a half years now has been coordinating the training and the integration of the forces under its operational control, as deterrent, in the case of any aggression in the area it is responsible for.

The Romanian National Defense Minister, Angel Tîlvăr, has received in audience a Thales Alenia Space Italia delegation and the Italian Ambassador to Bucharest, His Excellency Alfredo Maria Durante Mangoni. High on the agenda were topics pertaining to Romanian Army’s main endowment programs, ongoing or in preparation. To that effect, the stages have been reviewed, as well as the procedures, required by the Romanian legislation, but also the role of the structures with responsibilities in the process of foundation and approval of the modern military technique and equipment endowment programs.
Also in Bucharest, the Defense Chief of Staff, General Gheorghita Vlad, had a meeting with his counterpart of the Hellenic Republic, General Dimitrios Choupis.

Talks focused on the security context with emphasis on the Black Sea region, the measures the allies have taken to enhance the Eastern flank’s defensive architecture as well as on the diversification of the joint training, Also, the two officials broached a series of topics ahead of The Balkan Countries’ Defense Chiefs of Staff Conference on military cooperation problems.

General Vlad praised the Romanian and Greek militaries’ contribution to regional stability through their participation in NATO and European Union missions and operations in the West Balkans. The Romanian MoD has highlighted that, “the presence of our Greek colleagues in the allied structures stationed in our country, as well as the participation of several air and naval capabilities belonging to the two armies, in multinational exercises, are the constant points of an excellent military cooperation. “

In another move, we recall that more than 400 producers of military equipment and technique of almost 30 NATO member or partner states have participated in the ninth edition of the biggest regional event dedicated to defense and security, the Black Sea Defense and Aerospace. The event was held on the Romaero Baneasa platform in Bucharest. Jointly with the exhibiting companies, attending the event were more than 300 high-ranking foreign delegates and representatives of 55 states of all continents. As part of the exhibition, all five military operational fields were presented: the terrestrial, air naval, cyber and space fields. The main attraction was the 5th generation of the F-35 multipurpose aircraft the US Air Force, as an absolute first, has brought to Europe.
