Upon arriving, the Vice President visited Otopeni Airbase to receive a tour of the military exercise “Carpathian Spring” and greet joint U.S. and Romanian participants. While there, he underscored the United States’ ironclad commitment to the collective defense of NATO under Article 5, and expressed appreciation for Romania’s contributions to regional and global security. He also discussed the international community’s response to Russia’s illegal military intervention and destabilizing actions in Ukraine.
