NNA – The Romanian Ambassador to Lebanon, Victor Mircea, held on Tuesday night a reception on the occasion of the Romanian National Day at the Club Officers in Yarze, in the presence of officials and dignitaries.

Mircea praised the cooperation between Romanian and Lebanon’s armed forces.
“We are close to finalizing the military agreement between our governments which will deepen this cooperation. We support the remarkable efforts Lebanon makes in order to preserve its unity, its independence and its stability. It is important for us all that Lebanon will shun the regional turmoil,” he added.
Mircea welcomed the guests “It is a great joy for me to welcome you on the occasion of the Romanian Army Day which we now celebrate for the first time in Lebanon. Today is the day where we honor those who have fought through the years for the independence, liberty, sovereignty and the territorial integrity of our country, those who have lost their lives, who have protected and continue to protect us”.
He reminded that on 25th of October 1944 the Romanian army liberated the last piece of Romanian land under occupation.
