Romania sends troops to NATO effort on Libya embargo

Bucharest (ANTARA News/Reuters) - Romania will contribute 207 troops to NATO efforts to enforce an arms embargo on Libya, as requested by the alliance, President Traian Basescu said on Tuesday.

Ambassadors of the 28 NATO states meeting in Brussels on Tuesday decided to activate a plan for alliance warships and aircraft to implement the U.N.-decreed arms embargo on Libya.

"There was a NATO request for a frigate and two officers from the naval forces` general staff," Basescu told reporters after a meeting of the country`s Supreme Defence Council.

Frigate Regele Ferdinand with 205 troops on board and two officers from the navy`s general staff will be ready to leave on its mission within 30 days, he said.

Basescu also said the council decided to supplement the country`s troops to Afghanistan with 66 gendarmes to help train riot police
