Vineri, 15 iunie 2007, 0:00

Romania may send supplementary troops in Afghanistan, in addition to the 900 military already present there. The statement was made last night by the Romanian Foreign Minister, Adrian Cioroianu, during his visit to the US.
"We are ready to increase the number of Romanian military, mainly for a mission to instruct the Afghani troops", said Cioroianu, according to the AFP press agency.

"Any changes in the configuration of our troops will be based on negotiations with our allies", said Cioroianu, mentioning that the 500 military in Iraq will continue to be a controversial subject for a while.

"Romania, hosting the 2008 NATO summit, will continue to involve in fighting the terrorism, along with its allies", Cioroianu added.

UPDATE: Contacted by Hotnews, Foreign Ministry officials explained that the statement made by Cioroianu bears more nuances, referring to both the number of soldiers and the efforts for post-war reconstruction.
