Ciuca: Romanian Army Day is celebration of all Romanians who love their country
Nicolae Ciucă

The Romanian Army Day is not only a holiday of the military, but also of all Romanians who love their country, said the interim Minister of Defence, Prime Minister-designate Nicolae Ciuca.

"The Romanian Army Day is every year the moment when we proudly honor and respect the deeds of arms of our forefathers, their sacrifice for Romania's independence and sovereignty. Every time the country was in danger, the Romanian military fought valiantly for the preservation of the national being and for the protection of every piece of Romanian land. The day of October 25, 1944, once became a symbol of the liberation from foreign occupation of the city of Carei, Transylvania and the whole of Romania. We bow our heads respectfully in memory of those who sacrificed themselves to carry out this mission of honor to achieve the ideal of freedom of Romanians," said Nicolae Ciuca, on Monday, at the ceremony organized on the occasion of the Romanian Army Day at the "The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" Monument in Carol I Park.

He also sent a message of gratitude to the war veterans, wishing them good health, Agerpres informs.

He also made a brief assessment of the activity carried out in the last year at the level of the Ministry of National Defence.

He also mentioned the completion of the restoration, rehabilitation and conservation project of the monument dedicated to the Romanian heroes from the First World War, the "Commemorative Cross" on Caraiman Peak.

The Minister also pointed out the international achievements of the Romanian military.

"Internationally, we have continued to act to strengthen the collective defence bodies of which we are a part, at our country's eastern border in all three dimensions - land, air and sea. It is an important part of NATO's eastern flank and border. We will continue, militarily, to act responsibly, predictably and in coordination with our allies and partners to strengthen Romania's role as a pole of stability in the Black Sea region," Ciuca said.

He also brought to mind that the participation of the Romanian Army in the mission in Afghanistan ended this year.

The interim Minister of Defence also thanked all the troops who have fulfilled or are fulfilling missions today in the other theaters of operations, or on the national territory.

He also referred to the contribution of the Romanian military to combating the COVID 19 pandemic.

The interim Minister of Defence stressed that the Romanian Army Day is not only a holiday of the military, but also of "all Romanians who love their country".

"It is an opportunity to show you our appreciation and to thank you for the devotion and professionalism with which you carry out your missions. Today I convey my thoughts of appreciation to all those who have served their country with faith, active or reserve military and especially to the war veterans and those from the theaters of operations. I also send congratulations and best wishes to the entire staff of the Romanian Army. Many Happy Returns to the Romanian Army and Romania!," Ciuca also said.
