Romania will allocate $1.4 million to strengthen the defense capabilities of Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia and Jordan within the framework of NATO's Defense Capacity Building Initiative (DCB).
juridice.ro writes about it.
Romania will allocate $600,000 to the trust fund for strengthening Moldova's defense capabilities. The Romanian government will provide $400,000 to Ukraine, $300,000 to Georgia, and $100,000 to Jordan as part of the comprehensive NATO-Ukraine aid package.
The money is allocated by redirecting the remaining unallocated amounts related to Romania's contribution to the NATO Voluntary Fund for the Support of the Afghan National Army (ANA TF).
"The decision is consistent with Romania's foreign policy and security interests in strengthening the eastern flank, especially from the point of view of supporting the Euro-Atlantic path of the Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia," the government's decision reads.
It will be recalled that the President of Moldova Maia Sandu flew to the UN General Assembly in New York on the same plane with the leaders of Poland, Estonia and the Secretary General of NATO.
As is known, Sandu's statement that Moldova needs to take care of the development of its army immediately caused accusations of "aggressive intentions" from the Kremlin and Transnistria, controlled by the Russian Federation.
