The forests deserve to be protected and cared for, President Klaus Iohannis stated in a message delivered on Tuesday on the World Environment Day, mentioning that things have improved a bit in respect to deforestation, but there is still a lot to be done.
The head of state attended on Tuesday, at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace, an event occasioned by the World Environment Day, that was attended by tens of pupils of the “Grigore Moisil” National College of Bucharest. During the event, the children could watch a part of the movie called “Untamed Romania.”
“We have a fabulous country, with an extraordinary beautiful nature and it seemed appropriate for us to present all these things to you today, here, on a day with a special significance – the Environment Day. If we were to talk about environment in Romania, it’s very important to speak boldly, it’s important to speak clear and emphatic, because we care,” Iohannis told the children.
Moreover, the President encouraged the pupils to protect forests, plant trees, collect the trash and extinguish their campfire when they put it out.
The children asked the head of state a couple of questions, thus learning that the President likes to visit the Retezat Mountains.
Furthermore, when asked to chose what country is more beautiful between Romania and Germany, the President responded: “The answer is very, very simple. Romania is the most beautiful country.”
The event held at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace was hosted by actress Oana Pellea and journalist Marius Constantinescu.
