President Iohannis: The Europe we live in is not a given, we all must protect it continuously


President Klaus Iohannis says that Europe, "to which whole generations aspired and fought for," is not a given but it must be continuously protected as the values underpinning the world peace after WWII are threatened, and at the global level there is a tendency toward geopolitical fragmentation and resettlement.

"The Europe we live in, our Europe - to which entire generations aspired and fought for - is not a given. We must all protect it continuously. In these difficult times, fear and uncertainty create fertile ground for misinformation and hybrid attacks, which call into question the democratic principles and values we believe in. In the face of these actions, a rational approach is necessary, a careful analysis of information and sources, unaltered by manipulation, as well as engaging in constructive debates on major European issues of interest to our society. By protecting Europe, we protect ourselves, our security and prosperity. European solutions for current challenges are solutions for the future of our citizens," the Romanian President says in a message issued on May 9, Europe Day.

He points out that Romania can contribute substantially, in the future, to the achievement of these common objectives.
