While not directly, we would still help Moldova in case of military conflict, says Iohannis


Special AGERPRES correspondent Loredana Ciobanu reports: President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday told a press conference held in the Republic of Moldova, that, given its membership in NATO, Romania cannot provide "direct military" support to Moldova, in the event of an extension of the conflict in Ukraine, it could still help with equipping or improving the troops. Cereport reports citing Agerpres

Asked if Romania could provide a security umbrella for the Republic of Moldova in such a situation, the head of state stated that Romania can provide logistical support.

"I would be tempted to ask you what a security umbrella means, because Romania is in NATO and Moldova is a neutral state, so I don't see any way to intervene in a conflict, directly, with troops, but we can still intervene to improve the Moldovan troops, to train them, to help them with equipment, as we did in the past too. So, there are many ways in which we can and we do help Moldova," stated Klaus Iohannis.

Regarding how the security guarantees for Ukraine would work, Iohannis said that these issues are still under discussion and will be debated at the future NATO Summit.
