Statement By Ambassador Hans Klemm on the death of Corporal Mădălin Stoica in Afghanistan

I was saddened to hear of the death of Corporal Mădălin Stoica who was killed during an incident in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and of injuries to other two Romanian soldiers.

I would like to extend my personal condolences and those of the United States to the family and friends of Corporal Mădălin Stoica, as well as to his fellow soldiers. I also wish a speedy recovery to the injured soldiers.

The valor of Romania’s soldiers in the NATO mission in Afghanistan  continues to demonstrate the highest commitment to defending freedom and democracy.
