It marks 62 years since the first step towards a united Europe, a Europe of solidarity first and foremost - the fundamental principle which underlies the future of European construction and, unfortunately, the principle hardest hit by latest years’ austerity. Therefore, I strongly believe that it is high time for economic recovery to occur under the rule of solidarity and sustainable growth and employment to take the place of austerity. This is, both the belief and mission that I assume for European Romania! Many Happy Returns of the day to all Romanian citizens, European citizens! "
