GENERAL ASSESSMENT: Romania held one of the longest borders of NATO with the neighboring states, the biggest part of them being aspirants to membership. Since NATO’s main role in the area is projecting regional and global security, this fact is of first importance for Romanian’s perception of its security and the security of its neighboring countries.Since energy security is in the forefront of the interest in Romania, which is designing nowadays a new Security Strategy with an important part dedicated to energy security and since the energy security of Romania and NATO’s countries is related to the one of the countries in the Wider Black Sea Area, there is the source of interest of the Romanian public for that matter and its solutions at NATO and partner countries level. The new strategic concept of of most interest for Romania, as an Alliance member at its border, but also a contributor to its operations.
