In a message on the occasion of St. Sava's, or Spirituality Day, the holiday of the Serbian minority in Romania, Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca states that in contemporary Romania, belonging to an ethnic minority entails natural recognition like it should be in a democratic society, through the equality of rights and opportunities stipulated by the Constitution; the Premier adds that the wellbeing of any minority means the wellbeing of the entire society as well.

"The holiday of Romania's Serbian minority, Sveti Sava Day, although marked this year again in full pandemic swing, which puts a certain limitation on the dedicated events, remains just as important for our Serbian ethnic compatriots and for the Romanian society. The centuries-old history of the Serbian minority on Romanian soil is a chapter with multiple valences, through numerous examples of representatives of the Serbian ethnics who have distinguished themselves in the fields of culture, education, literature, spirituality, science and sports, or who fought like heroes, side by side with the Romanians, in the two world conflagrations of the first half of the last century. Born on Romanian soil, they have preserved their language, culture and faith identity to this day, but they feel part of this space of good interethnic and interreligious coexistence," Nicolae Ciuca said.

"The Days of Serbian Culture in Timisoara - a large-scale cultural project dedicated to the Banat Serbians that saw its 16th edition last year - or the appearance of an album with monuments dedicated by local communities to WWI and WWII heroes, including ethnic Serbians, also make a direct contribution to strengthening cultural and interpersonal bridges with our fellow nationals of Serbian ethnicity. On the occasion of the celebration of their spiritual patron, St. Sava, I wish the Serbian minority in Romania and all the Serbians 'Many Happy Returns!'," the Prime Minister wrote, Agerpres informs.
