CHISINAU (Sputnik) — NATO and Moldova have yet to discuss arms supply to Chisinau, as there are no such contracts in place, Moldova's Defense Minister Anatolie Salaru said on Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, the military bloc would continue to enhance Georgia and Moldova's defense capabilities.
"NATO has not delivered any arms or armaments to us so far. We are participating in the DCBI, the Defense Capability Building Initiative. Yet we are still at the stage of adopting the framework — a national security strategy and national defense strategy. Shall we see. Stoltenberg will say later what he meant," Salaru said.
Moldova is a neutral country according to its Constitution, however, the republic has been cooperating with NATO since 1994 within the framework of the Partnership for Peace program.
