In his welcome speech, the Ambassador of Romania to Pakistan Nicolae Goia said that on 25th October 1944, the Romanian Army had liberated the last inch of our homeland territory from alien occupation. The sacrifices of more than 700.000 militaries who paid the ultimate price during the four years of fierce battles, made Romania the fourth contributing power in defeating Fascism in WWII. Seventy-seven years later, Ambassador said that Romania is a powerful state that allies and partners can rely on as a pillar of stability and security provider in the region and worldwide. He further added about the Army that is operating with the highest standards, ready and fully prepared to contribute towards the protection of European and democratic community values.
