Romanian PM Mihai Tudose will sign on Tuesday a major contract with a US-based gun maker that will start producing weapons in Romania in collaboration with a local company. The announcement was made by Romanian PM Mihai Tudose.

“Tomorrow we will sign an important contract with a US company, which will produce weapons in Romania, in collaboration with a Romanian company, also a long-term commitment about Romania’s  presence in NATO and what that will mean and hope it will continue to do that, in this part of Europe, on the Eastern flank and in the Western Balkans, as a pillar of stability and as a well-known strategic partner – and we thank you for it – of the Alliance,” the head of the Romanian government said after meeting with the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at Vila Lac.

Moreover, the PM thanked the NATO official for the support it showed Romania, including via the presence of numerous Romanians in the NATO management. The NATO head is visiting Romania to attend the 63rd annual session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
