Redam integral declaratia acestuia:

"I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Commander Gillis and everyone aboard the Royal Canadian Navy frigate HMCS St. John’s for hosting myself and our friends from the Romanian Armed Forces yesterday in Constanta.
It was a privilege to join Romania's Naval Chief, Vice Admiral Mirsu, and several other distinguished guests from the Romanian Armed Forces for a productive working visit aboard the St. John’s.
Canada and Romania are strong NATO Allies, working together on land, air, and sea to preserve our common security, and to provide ongoing reassurance the entire Atlantic Alliance."
