House Romania Caucus Co-Chairs Dingell, Turner Introduce Resolution Celebrating 25 Years of Strategic Partnership between the United States and Romania
Washington, July 13, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, House Romania Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI) and Michael R. Turner (R-OH) introduced a resolution celebrating 25 years of strategic partnership between the United States and Romania. The resolution celebrates the 25th anniversary of the strategic partnership between the United States and Romania, reaffirms the close bonds between the two countries based on a shared commitment to common values, and calls for a further strengthening of the partnership between the United States and Romania to find new ways to leverage, support, and develop the friendship and cooperation between the two nations.
“The decades-long strategic partnership between the United States and Romania underscores our nations’ shared commitment to the transatlantic relationship, as well as supporting peace and security in the region,” Rep. Dingell said. “We look forward to continuing to build bridges between our two nations based on shared interests and values to support security, economic resiliency, and fundamental human rights in the years ahead.”
"When the United States and Romania signed the Strategic Partnership 25 years ago, both countries knew working together would strengthen economic and national security opportunities for a better future," said Turner. "In the face of Russia’s illegal war, the critical need for this partnership is once again realized with U.S. service members and weapons systems stationed alongside Romanians as they protect their borders and support their neighbor Ukraine. It is my hope the depths of the strong relationship between our two countries only deepens over the next 25 years.”The resolution follows the announcement last month at the NATO Summit in Madrid that the United States will take additional steps to strengthen the NATO alliance, including positioning a rotational brigade combat team in Romania.
