Developments in recent years have led to a change in the nature of security risks and threats in Europe, with implications for risks and threats to regional and national security. In the current geopolitical and geostrategic European context, Romania's security policy as a NATO and EU member is defined by the diversification and amplification of relations with the great Western democracies and, on a regional level, the consolidation and intensification of cooperation with the neighbouring and riparian neighbouring countries of the Danube River and the Sea Black. The particular geostrategic position of the Black Sea on the trans-European transport lines and national transport systems, the existence of natural resources, determines certain decision-makers, often having divergent interests, to exert powerful influences not only on maritime navigation, but also on the security of the whole regions. In this context, Romania is vitally interested in preserving its territorial integrity within land, sea and river boundaries, unaltered preservation of the Danube to the Black Sea through the Delta branches and the Danube-Black Sea Canal, to ensure stability in the area, freedom of movement on maritime ways, defence of the maritime infrastructure, protection of the sea and delta environment, and participation in allied and allied naval military actions. Romania does not consider any state as a potential threat to national security. Navy forces, like the entire army, may also take part in resolving maritime disputes, particularly by peaceful means, contributing to maintaining the security climate in the region. The current status of NATO-EU membership requires the conscious, voluntary and responsible assumption of complex tasks in terms of providing an adequate response to the security risks and threats at its eastern and river frontier. Therefore, I consider it essential to analyse the Wider Black Sea Region (WBSR) in the context of the new developments in the evolution of the security environment. It should be noted that WBSR is the only area in Europe where frozen conflicts can be detected, that is why it is fundamental to realize an analysis of the security strategies of the main actors in the WBSR and find the possibility for cooperation, to avoid more armed clashes in the region and the international environment will be favourable in the future.
