Romanian President tells Trump Bucharest ready to accept more US troops

Bucharest is ready to accept more US troops who are expected to then be deployed to various policing and military units in the country, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said following his meeting with US President Donald Trump, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

"I demonstrated Romania's readiness to accept a larger US military contingent, and President Trump was very open ... We want to have more [US] military personnel, for example, in the multinational brigade; in the regional command, which we plan to create; in the air police. There are various other specific issues that should surely be discussed at the earliest opportunity," Iohannis said.

According to the Romanian leader, Bucharest and Washington should develop military, political, energy, security and economic cooperation. Trump even showed interest in developing new energy sources, Iohannis noted while expressing hope that his country would become an energy provider in the region by advancing civil nuclear technologies.
