Romania: An Overview [Updated June 14, 2022]   [open pdf - 570KB]

From the Document: "With a population of almost 20 million, Romania is the largest country in southeastern Europe. After the end of communist rule in 1989, Romania adopted a Euro-Atlantic orientation, joining NATO in 2004 and the European Union (EU) in 2007. Romania's strategic Black Sea location, steadfast commitment to its security partnership with the United States, and shared concerns about Russia make it a key U.S. ally in the region. Romanian officials have unequivocally condemned Russia's 2022 war on Ukraine and have supported EU sanctions against Russia and NATO's enhanced deterrence and defense posture in the eastern part of the alliance."
