Ambassador of Romania to the United States George Maior will discuss the status of the U.S.-led NATO missile defense site hosted by Romania at the Deveselu Military Base and its role within the context of Romanian, NATO, and American shared security interests.The Trump administration has demonstrated a continued U.S. commitment to expand U.S. missile defense in Europe in light of increasing missile threats and to extend U.S.-ally missile defense cooperation.

The Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defense site in Romania became operational on May 12, 2016. The Aegis Ashore facility is the first of two interceptor sites; its complement site will be completed in Poland in 2018. Aegis Ashore leverages technology used in the U.S. Navy’s guided missile destroyers and cruisers to protect against ballistic missile threats.
