CONCEPTUAL DELIMITATIONS REGARDING THE MULTINATIONAL OPERATIONS. NATO AND EU INVOLVEMENT IN MULTINATIONAL OPERATIONS
The international security environment at the beginning of XXI century is still characterized, by instability and lack of predictability, given that effects of the Cold War still make their presence felt, while in various regions of the world there are new sources of tension which, many of them ending up violent. The only structures able to provide adequate answers in such situations, are international security organizations, such as UN, NATO, EU, or OSCE. By their nature these organizations have the resources needed to respond quickly and effectively to emerging crises. The existing situation in the international security environment requires the existence of strong military capabilities, versatile enough, to cover the full range of military operations, including war and stability and support operations. By virtue of assumed role of UN, the international community can dispose the intervention of forces for elimination of the effects of local conflicts and humanitarian disasters usually, with the mandate of international security organizations like NATO and the EU to act on his behalf. Romania, NATO and EU member country, participated and certainly, will participate in future multinational operations under NATO or coalition forces, at the request of international security organizations or partners.
