The experts also talked about the security system in Romania, Black Sea region, in the context of great powers’ clash of interests, the impact of Russia-USA relations on Eastern Europe and its consequences for the national security of the Republic of Moldova, ensuring state security by fighting and preventing corruption, the achievement of contemporary civilization in the military and human security areas, the implementation of Resolution 1325 “Women, Peace, and Security” in the Republic of Moldova, indexes, forms and methods of influence on the security in the region, evolution of the defense economy in the modern strategic environment, and other relevant subjects.
During the event, General State Secretary, Radu Burduja, mentioned how important is to organize such scientific conferences that have the objective to comprehensively address the regional and international security environments in the framework of the sector’s current challenges.
“Within the current geopolitical context, the economic, political, social, environmental, and informational issues, the approach regarding Moldova’s security must be addressed by considering the interests of regional and international actors. In this regard, it is very relevant to develop mechanisms and tools that would detect pre-crisis situations or potential conflicts, generate a sufficiently reliable forecast of their evolution, and then generate recommendations for an effective solution. Obviously, all these require a relevant and appropriate instrumentation that I am certain will be identified by the participants of today’s conference,” said Radu Burduja.
The international conference “Security Strategic Environment: Trends and Challenges” is organized annually by the Strategic studies and defense security center of the MAAF.
