Romania to take part in EU Military Cooperation Fund

Romania is set to participate in a set of ten projects included in the European Union’s newly-created Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) defence fund, which was set up to enable closer military cooperation and integration between EU member states.
The announcement was made by Romania’s presidency, after the country’s Supreme Defence Council met on Tuesday to discuss the country’s approach and contribution to the EU military fund.
The presidency did not explain what kind of projects the Council approved, but said they were in line with the country’s military priorities.
The European Council agreed on June 23 to launch PESCO as a defence research and cooperation fund.
PESCO is intended to allow “a core group of countries to take systematic steps towards a more coherent security and defence policy without dividing the Union”, according to the EU’s website.
