According to Marian Lupu, both the National Army and the entire defense system need reform. They need to be updated based on some well-established programs and strategies. “Today, we discuss some strategic issues that have a lot in common with the financial issue and other problems. At the last meeting of the Supreme Security Council, we have made all the necessary conclusions and set the required tasks. Now, we have to see what the financial resources will be as compared to the Gross Domestic Product or other formulas, because the steps we have to make to reform the army depend on the resources we have. The army needs reform and equipment”, the head of state specified.

According to Minister of Defense Vitalie Marinuta, as soon as the National Security Strategy is approved by the Parliament, the National Military Strategy will be developed and applied as a key element in the military building, modernization and reform process of the National Army.
