font size    

Romania's Defense Minister Sorin Frunzaverde on Monday attended in Bistrita, northern Romania, the ceremony that marked the departure of the 812nd Infantry Battalion "Hawks of the Carpathians" on a new international mission in Afghanistan.

In the coming six months, the 480 Romanian troops deployed in Qalat, capital of Zabul province, will participate in the ISAF III mission, providing support to the Afghan army and police.

"Of all theaters of operations so far, the situation in southern Afghanistan is one of the most difficult," Frunzaverde said, adding he is convinced that this elite unit of the Romanian army will brilliantly cope with the new mission.
