Deputy PM Barna:America has been a role model for our grandparents, stays as such for us too
The fundamental American values such as freedom, the rule of law and democracy are ours too, Deputy Prime Minister Dan Barna wrote on Facebook today after the presidential inauguration ceremony in Washington.
“President Joe Biden said a few minutes ago, in his address: ‘America will lead the world by the power of example.’ We will closely work with the new US administration. We have a strategic partnership we want to continue and develop, we have economic relations with the potential to grow to a much higher level, and above all we have a friendship to cultivate that we will leave as a legacy to those who will succeed us. We too share the fundamental American values such as freedom, rule of law and democracy. This is why America has been a role model for our grandparents and continues to be that for us too. It will stay like this for now and forever,” Barna wrote.
