Gun Training Course
CHISINAU, June 7, 2011 — A group of inspectors of the Conventional Arms Control Agency from Germany will hold a training course for the National Army personnel during June
According to LTC Sergiu Railean, Chief of International Treaty Implementation Service, Strategic Planning Directorate, German servicemen will organize theoretical lessons for the National Army officers on gun control issue. Inspectors will also check the conventional arms in the Artillery Unit from Ungheni.
The Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe signed November 1990 in Paris limits five categories of weapons in Europe (tanks, armored combat vehicles (ACVs), artillery, combat aircrafts and attack helicopters) and highlights an exchange of information and detailed remarks, as well as unforeseen inspections and control in military units of the participating countries.
Based on this treaty, the limited amount of weapons and equipment has been decreased all over Europe. Thus, over 3000 inspection operations have been carried out so far and over 60 thousand weapons have been destroyed.
Republic of Moldova ratified the CFE Treaty in July 1992.
