The chair of the Foreign Policy Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR) MP Biro Rozalia, said in a message on the occasion of Europe Day that after the unprecedented health crisis that hit Europe and the world, the European concept must be redefined through action and coordination, taking into account the needs of each society.
"At the moment, we need more openness to the Western Balkans, to the countries that are making efforts in the process of joining the European Union. We need a strong and united Europe, to be able to recover economically, to become a strong voice globally. Today, more than ever, Romania needs to firmly express its point of view and take concrete steps to show that its place is still among the consolidated European democracies, in which civil rights are respected, and the law is equal for all, regardless of ethnicity, culture or religion," says Biro Rozalia.
She says that the current regional and international context can be an opportunity for Romania to demonstrate that it is a strong country and has a mature political class, able to guarantee the security and prosperity of its citizens, agerpres.ro confirms.
"Europe Day, or Schuman Day, was established in 1964, and today, May 9 is a day that brings people closer to the legacy of European Union culture. Now, more than ever, there is a need for solidarity, for cooperation between member states, for the preservation of common values, for the consolidation and perpetuation of the European project. When Europe and the whole world face this pandemic, more pragmatism and empathy are needed. More than ever solidarity and unity are needed among all the countries of the European continent. After this unprecedented health crisis that has hit Europe - and the whole world - the European concept must be redefined through action and coordination, taking into account the needs of each individual society," said the chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Chamber of Deputies.
