Message from Prime Minister Nicolae-Ionel Ciucă on May 10, Romanian Independence Day, and Romanian Monarchy Day

On May 10, Romania celebrates 145 years of state independence, proclaimed in the Romanian Parliament by Mihail Kogalniceanu, Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Cabinet led by Liberal Ion C. Bratianu, and acquired arms in hands in 1877 Independence War on the battlefields of Pleven and Vidin.

This holiday is all the more important as, according to the law, this year its celebration no longer overlaps the holidays associated with May 9 - the end of WWII and Europe Day, but with the Monarchy Day.

Serving Romania with honour and dignity, an invaluable part of our European heritage and destiny, on the battlefield or through diplomacy, the monarchy made a direct contribution to today’s Romania, a free country united in Europe, an ideal for which whole generations sacrificed themselves.

Romania's independence was hard to achieve, through the sacrifices and blood sacrifice of the Romanian soldiers. It is our obligation and responsibility to pay tribute to their memory and honour the sacrifices through which Romania gained state independence from Ottoman Empire.

As a result of a combined effort by the army, diplomacy and society as a whole, our independence strengthened the nation-building generated by the Union of Principalities and paved the way to modernity, Western values, and recognition of our European vocation.

As King Carol I once wrote: 'We have gained our independence with our own blood, and therefore we owe it only to ourselves.'

The freedom to choose our path, gained by the heroism of the Romanian soldiers, currently prompts us to look with respect at the history written by the forerunners and to understand its value, especially in this complicated period we are going through. Our presence in NATO - the strongest political and military alliance in the world - and in the EU place Romania under the sign of full protection of its irreversible pro-European option, also consolidated through a transatlantic partnership.

I congratulate all Romanians today, on Romania's Independence Day! Happy Independence Day, Romania! Happy Independence Day, Romanians!

Nicolae-Ionel Ciucă,

Prime Minister of Romania
