U.S. and Romania Sign Nuclear Cooperation Memorandum of Understanding

The Government of the United States of America and the Government of Romania signed a Memorandum of Understanding Concerning Strategic Civil Nuclear Cooperation (NCMOU) to further solidify the steadfast partnership of our two nations.

This Memorandum strengthens U.S.-Romania ties in an area of cooperation that is deeply rooted in our mutual national security and strategic interests, and is supportive of our respective energy security goals.  It signals our long-term commitment to working together to develop Romania’s civil nuclear program and jointly pursue the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.  Romania is an invaluable NATO Ally and supports mutual and international security efforts in the region and globally.

Our NCMOUs are diplomatic mechanisms that strengthen and expand strategic ties between the United States and a partner country by providing a framework for cooperation on civil nuclear issues and for engagement between experts from government, industry, national laboratories and academic institutions.
