A delegation consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, led by Mr. Lucian Nicolae BODE, Minister of Internal Affairs, is paying an official visit to the United States during the period May 16-18, 2022.
The visit takes place throughout a year in which it marks the 25th anniversary from the launch of the Romania-US Strategic Partnership, a significant milestone in bilateral relations between the two states.
During the visit, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Lucian Nicolae Bode, has meetings at the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the US Congress.
The discussions with US officials focus on institutional efforts in line with State Department recommendations made in the Trafficking in Persons Report (TiP Report), Romania having the tools to respond adequately to the challenges posed by this type of crime, namely structures, legislation, strategies and action plans.
The meetings are an excellent opportunity to reconfirm the very good cooperation between the Romanian authorities and the US law enforcement agencies, in the field of combating organized crime, with a focus on combating illegal migration and cybercrime, as well as intensifying the exchange of information.
During the meetings with members of the US Congress, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Lucian Nicolae Bode, will discuss the challenges of the current regional context both from the perspective of managing the humanitarian crisis generated by Russia’s aggression upon Ukraine and also in terms of security.
