Romania contributes to the Coalition’s efforts training and advising Iraq’s Armed Forces as they lead the fight against Daesh. Romania is also committed to providing humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi and Syrian people and to supporting the international community’s efforts to encourage a lasting peace in Syria.
We have responded, as a nation that has been a participant in the anti-Daesh coalition for some time, by defining a contribution focused on advisory and guidance activities for Special Forces. This means around 50 military personnel who will carry out training and advice missions in order to develop these type of capabilities for the Iraqi Armed Forces. It is important to be present there, to prove that we are not intimidated by terrorism.Mihnea Motoc, Minister of National Defense
