Message of Ambassador Iulian Buga addressed to the Romanian community in the United State on the occasion of the Romanian Language Day

“On the occasion of the Romanian Language Day, I wish to congratulate all those who speak, write

and read Romanian. This celebration is another opportunity to promote the values ​that bind Romanian

speakers because through the language we preserve the culture, traditions and history.

The fact that Romanian language became an official language of the European Union is a matter of pride

to our identity. Romanian Language Day is a time to celebrate a symbol of our national identity. Over

time, the language has been connecting element of Romanian historical provinces, and now is a bridge

among all Romanians, regardless of where they live.”

Ambassador Iulian BUGA
