Romanian Intelligence Service has taken additional measures to prevent a terrorist attack
Currently, in Romania there is no a major threat of a terrorist attack, but the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) has taken additional measures to prevent such an incident, but without lifting the existing alert level, said the institution’s director, George Maior. SRI’s director also said that there were foiled attacks in our country and that the service acted by expulsion of persons, or by denial the access of the citizens suspected of such activities. According to George Maior, SRI has taken additional measures for the defense of potential targets and increased monitoring of border traffic. The events in Paris may have an impact on the Romania’s admission to Schengen Area, considers George Maior, who asserts that now both Romania and the European Union, as a whole, faces two major threats: the geopolitical phenomenon at the eastern borders, generated by the crisis in the Crimea and Russia’s neo-imperial policy and the import of terrorism in the Middle East, through Islamic State’s actions and the actions of other fundamentalist groups.
