Bucharest, Sept 7 /Agerpres/ - Premier Mihai Tudose asked on Thursday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to address the "special situation" in Ukraine, where Romanian schools have been shut down.
"I kindly ask for your involvement (...) in the special situation in Ukraine. It really is a very special situation. We have a huge national issue on our hands with just one school [the Roman Catholic Theological Highschool in Targu Mures] and on the other hand they close down all our education facilities there," Premier Tudose said at the beginning of the government meeting, speaking to Foreign Ministry's Secretary of State George Ciamba.
Romania's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday expressed concern over Ukraine's adopting a new Education Law, stating that mother tongue education for Romanians in Ukraine will be a priority on the agenda of Secretary of State Victor Micula, who will travel to Kiev next week.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has learned with concern about the version of the new Law on Education adopted by the Supreme Rada of Ukraine on September 5, especially Article 7, which refers to instruction in the languages of national minorities. We express our expectation that the rights of persons belonging to the Romanian minority in Ukraine are preserved and highlight the constant concern of the Romanian officials with this issue," the Foreign Ministry said Thursday in a press statement.
The Foreign Ministry points out that under the provisions of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, the parties shall endeavour to ensure that all persons belonging to national minorities have adequate opportunities for being taught the minority language or for receiving instruction in this language. "The necessity of complying with the international rules in the field has been permanently signalled by Romania in its dialogue with Ukraine on the promotion and protection of the rights of persons belonging to the Romanian national minority of Ukraine," Romania's Foreign Ministry underscored.AGERPRES(RO - author: Madalina Cerban, editor: Georgiana Tanasescu; EN - author: Simona Klodnischi, editor: Maria Voican)
