In a message posted on the Department of State’s website on November 28, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry congratulates, on behalf of President Obama and the American people, all Romanians as they celebrate the Unification Day on December 1
“Ninety-six years ago, the people of Romania created a democracy that guaranteed equality for all nationalities and religions and protected the freedoms of press, association, and speech. We pay tribute to those visionary leaders and applaud all those who continue to defend those fundamental rights and strengthen your democracy, rule of law, and national diversity, “ reads John Kerry’s message.
It highlights also that the United States is “grateful for Romania’s strong partnership on regional and global security challenges”.
“ As NATO allies, our soldiers serve side-by-side in Afghanistan. They carry out joint military training exercises. And they collaborate at military bases in your country like Deveselu and Mihail Kogalniceanu. As you celebrate with family and friends, I look forward to building on our strategic partnership for many years to come,” concludes the U.S Secretary of State in his message addressed to the Romanian people on the occasion of the National Day.
