CELEBRATING EUROPE’S DAY IN JORDAN

Monday, 12 May 2014

Several Jordanians enjoyed a family day held by the EU at the KingHusse in Park’s Cultural Village on Friday to mark Europe Day. Children and adults enjoyed activities such as musical concerts, games, face painting and a performance by Polish street theatre group “Pinezka”. We are celebrating May 9 every year because it is a national day for the European Union,” EU Ambassador to Jordan Joanna Wronecka told The Jordan Times during Friday’s event. “We are celebrating the Schuman declaration as we are proud of our solidarity and unity…” she added. The EU celebrates the Europe Day annually on May 9 in Europe and all over the world, marking French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman’s declaration in 1950.

In the evening two jazz concerts took place, which were attended by 400 people. Ambassador Maria Louisa Marinakis, representing the Greek Presidency of the EU, underlined the fact that the EU can become example of regional cooperation among countries of the Western Asia region in their efforts to solidify the right conditions of peaceful coexistence.
