President Maia Sandu said the Republic of Moldova looks at Romania with recognition and hope. In her message disseminated on the occasion of the National Day of Romania, the official noted that the people on both sides of the Prut want to live in peace and freedom, in a common prosperous European home, IPN reports.
“On December 1, it is a joy to celebrate together with Romania, to feel recognition for the good things done by the Romanians at home and everywhere in the world and to say why we love Romania,” President Sandu stated in her message addressed in a reception held by the Embassy of Romania in Chisinau.
Maia Sandu said Romania is loved for the Romanian language in which we grew up like in a parent’s home and for the common history – a history of courage and struggle for freedom. She thanked Romania for the considerable support offered to Moldova in the process of integration into the EU. “Moldova looks at Romania with recognition and hope. We trust that we follow the good path and will manage to bring Europe at home, including with Romania’s assistance. On both sides of the Prut, the people want to live in peace and freedom, in a common prosperous European home,” stated the official.
In the December 1 plenary sitting of Parliament, Speaker Igor Grosu congratulated the people of Romania and reiterated the gratitude for the support offered to Moldova in time. “Today, on the National Day of Romania, we thank it for its friendship and for all the good things that were done and are to be done together. The past two years, with overlapping crises, showed who is a real friend and who is not and we say it loudly every time: Thank you, Romania for the disinterested support, for the schools and kindergartens, for donations, for gas and electricity, primarily during this difficult period, as we can now connect to Europe in practical terms. We will continue working together for the citizens from both sides of the Prut to live in peace and welfare,” stated Igor Grosu.
On the same occasion, an exhibition of paintings by plastic artist Eleonora Brigalda was mounted in the Parliament Building. The ten works chosen from the author’s collection were made in oil and with mixed techniques. “I’m honored and gad to present my paintings in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova on this notable day, the Day of Romania. This is a very important and essential day and I decided to present works that were done during 10 years and center on the spiritual, religious, ethnical identity, the tumultuous and victorious past of the Republic of Moldova,” stated Eleonora Brigalda.
