RegsvrEurope must be stronger, louder, more capable and better prepared“, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said in a message on Europe Day.
“”Europe Day finds us this year in a completely redefined situation. After the massive provocation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now living the reality of the war at the European Union border, which has caused the greatest humanitarian crisis in Europe since the Second World War. We live in an unprecedented time in the presence of the Union, where the ability to uphold our basic values is tested, centered on peace, the concept by which European construction was built.
Peacekeeping has been constant in Europe for decades, and guarantees of stability have allowed us to achieve unprecedented levels of prosperity at the coalition level. 2022 marks the 15th anniversary of Romania’s accession to the European Union. This is an envisioned and endorsed option for society as a whole. The benefits of this election today are due to the status of EU member states providing an irreversible path to democratic progress, economic and social development, solidarity, and proactive efforts to build European projects. It is clear for our long-term progress. ,“The head of state said.
Klaus Iohannis condemned the war that Russia had begun.
“Unfortunately, in the immediate vicinity of Romania, the shockwaves of the provocative and illegal war that the Russian Federation has unleashed against Ukraine are in front of a reality that is radically different from the reality we have ever acted on. Today, in line with the spirit and model of the European democratic model, we have a duty to prove the same visionary decency that the founders of the Union had. Schumann’s words sound clearer than ever.<世界平和は、それを脅かす危険に見合った創造的な努力なしには確保できません。>“
In his view, “the threat of the Russian Federation to the security of the Euro-Atlantic could remain a reality for years to come.”
“Europe is stronger, louder, more capable and therefore better prepared by strengthening transatlantic cooperation, developing interoperability capabilities and mobilizing efforts to fully complement NATO. The coalition must provide sustainable support to strengthen the resilience of Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova and Georgia, which face dramatic challenges in security and stability. Supporting and supporting our partners remains a priority. ” Johannis pointed out.
The Romanian President will also invest more attention and appropriate resources to strengthen his ability to address the complex challenges of the present and future that extend beyond traditional military disciplines to cyberspace and hybrid threats. I think it is necessary. “At the same time, preparing for a safe future involves significant investment in education and the development of digital skills, but also the mobilization of national-level joint efforts to maintain a healthy environment. The challenge of ensuring food security requires effective action not only to reduce reliance on the European Union, but also to support Ukraine and its most vulnerable countries. “
