¶2. (U)  Begin Text: 
 
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its disappointment 
in view of the Russian Federation stipulated decision to 
suspend the application of the Conventional Forces in Europe 
Limitation Treaty and its annexes. 
 
Romania appreciates that the CFE Treaty represents a 
cornerstone in European security, which has demonstrated its 
viability in the arms control area through its contribution 
to the consolidation of security and stability in the area of 
application.  In addition, our country has always respected, 
in good faith, the assumed obligations to comply with the 
fulfillment of the CFE Treaty. 
 
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterates its pledge to the 
CFE Treaty, and the desire to contribute to the entry into 
force of the agreement for the Adapted CFE Treaty, after the 
fulfillment of all of the obligations assumed by the Russian 
Federation in 1999, in Istanbul. 
 
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its hope that 
dialogue between the states parties of the CFE Treaty will be 
maintained and that all state parties will continue to 
respect their full obligations within the framework of the 
Treaty.
