Romania has become a bridgehead of democracy in the region and beyond, President Iohannis says

In the last three decades, Romania has become a bridgehead of democracy in the region and beyond, President Klaus Iohannis has said in a message delivered at the second edition of the Summit for Democracy, hosted by the United States of America. The Romanian head of state evoked Russia’s illegal war against Ukraine and stated that all democratic countries must support those fighting for a democratic future when they can make their own choices.
Klaus Iohannis: Democracies must remain united in defense of their common value and vision of the world. We have already proven our strength by supporting Ukraine together, but also by increasing our ability to withstand growing threats. We have shown that our democracies are durable and resilient and must remain so. This also translates into continuing our work at home in areas that remain critical to strengthening our democracies.
