Looking to NATO membership

"Membership in NATO will be for Romania the same solid guarantee for defense and security enjoyed by all members of the Alliance in the past 55 years. This guarantee is very important for the development of a stable, democratic and prosperous Romania," said Ambassador Bogdan Mazuru in a special interview for the NATO Web site.
