Happy Birthday Europe....?
Rome 1957 - 2017
EU heads of state or government met in Rome, Italy, on 25 March, for the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties. This was an occasion to reflect on the state of the European Union and look at the future of the integration process.
"Today in Rome we are renewing the unique alliance of free nations that was initiated 60 years ago by our great predecessors", said President Donald Tusk at the ceremony in Campidoglio. "At that time they did not discuss multiple speeds, they did not devise exits, but despite all the tragic circumstances of the recent history, they placed all their faith in the unity of Europe."
President Tusk highlighted that fact that on the day of the anniversary millions of people across Europe were demonstrating their support for the EU.
