During his visit, the Social Democrat will entertain multiple meetings alongside member of the General Assembly in Illinois, the Association representing the legislative body of the American state.

Alfred Laurențiu Mihai will be joinning not just the US politicians, but also the close to 150.000 Romanian nationals that constitute the Romanian community in Chicago.

The Romanian politician informed that this visit will concentrate, amongst others, on the security of the Eastern Flank, as well as the protection that NATO offers Romania as the war in Ukrain continues to unravel.

„My visit to the US marks a key moment, that is the moment in which we work towards being more unitated and towards strengthening the Eastern Flank. I’m here to encourage communication between Romanian and US men of state, so that, together, we find o solution for surpassing the crisis that bestowed upon Ukraine and their nation. As NATO stands for protection, so does the solidarity between Romania and the US stands as a guarantee not just for Ukraine’s protection and safe keeping, but the protection and safekeeping of the entire European continent. The time has come to work together to defend our democratic values, to protect what is, for each and every one of us, of the utmost essence: freedom. We fight to protect the freedom of living and o living in peace. Now more than ever, we acknowledge the importance of unity, regardless of one’s nation, against the horrors of a futile and unjust war, that does nothing but deem the lives, the culture and the future of Ukraine. We stand by Ukraine and we condemnt the needless violence that Russia displayed, since day one, as well as the unfair and unjustified attempt to attack the suveranity of an independent state”, stated the Social Democrat Senator.

Social Democratic Party Senator Alfred Laurentiu Mihai attended the meeting of the General Committee on Justice, Home Affairs and Security Cooperation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Southeast European Cooperation Process (PA SEECP) in Athens, hosted by the Greek Parliament.

“I mentioned in my speech in the plenary of the Senate Hall of the Hellenic Parliament during the meeting that we strongly and unequivocally support the defense of human rights and the rights of vulnerable people, and I also mentioned the situation we are facing regarding the wave of refugees in Ukraine following the military aggression of the Russian Federation!
In my speech I also mentioned the efforts Romania is making to support Ukrainian refugees by offering them facilities such as: food, accommodation, free access to the health system, free access to the education system for children and the right to work without a permit for a period of 12 months with the right of extension.

Last but not least, I reminded that the Romanian people show solidarity and humanity towards our Ukrainian neighbors and I conveyed that the Romanian Parliament strongly condemned the aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, considering the attack in Bucha and other cities as war crimes and crimes against humanity!”
