MINSK, 1 December (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to the people of Romania as the country celebrates National Day, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian leader.
“In the first half of the twentieth century there were really significant events for Belarus and Romania. That is when our dreams of national unity came true. While looking into the future, one should always remember the past. Famous Romanian politician Nicolae Iorga said once: “A nation that does not know its history is like a child that does not know his/her parents,” said the head of state.
The president believes that today it is very important to preserve traditions, independence and integrity of the state, because it is the most valuable thing that can passed to the descendants.
Aleksandr Lukashenko confirmed his interest in the constructive development of bilateral relations based on the principles of partnership, trust and respect. “Belarus will continue to promote trade, economic, interregional cooperation with Romania, as well as interaction between scientific, educational and cultural institutions of the two countries,” the head of state said.
“I hope that the friendly relations between our countries will only strengthen over time,” the Belarusian president said and wished the people of Romania peace, well-being and harmony.
