U.S. Charge d’Affaires praises good bilateral cooperation during Independence Day’s message
U.S Charge d’Affaires Dean Thompson on Wednesday pledged for the enhancement of the bilateral cooperation during the message delivered in advance on Independence Day.
“We will explore every opportunity to unite with Romanians in support of our common goals and deepening friendship. We will continue to work with Romania to guarantee that the ideas and institutions of democracy, freedom, and equality are protected, strengthened and preserved not only now, but for all future generations,” Thompson says in his message.
He reminded this year 135 years of the U.S. – Romanian bilateral relations are marked, pointing out that at the core of this friendship are the shared transatlantic values. “We want all Romanians to live in peace and security, protected by the rule of law, enabled to thrive economically and positioned to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the increasingly globalized world in which we live,” the American envoy also said.
“239 years ago, our Founding Fathers adopted the Declaration of Independence. They believed that all people are created equal, free to think, to worship and to live as we please; that our destiny would not be determined for us, it would be determined by us. They established our great nation based on these ideas of equality and freedom”, he added.
