Opening the event, Minister Plenipotentiary of the Romanian Embass in Uzbekistan L.Cernaianu noted the contribution of Romania to the European Community over the past six months. “During the presidency of the Council of the European Union, Romania set a priority task for itself, to seek EU cohesion. As the chair country, Romania put forward a Work Program with four main areas of work. The first is the “Europe of rapprochement”, aimed at rapprochement and cohesion in Europe, in the name of providing opportunities for sustainable and equal development for all citizens and member states. The second direction is aimed at a "Safer Europe", which implies the solution of new security problems that threaten citizens. The third is called “Europe as a stronger global player.” In it, the chairmanship largely supports the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Finally, the last direction is “Europe of shared values”.
Director of the National Library of Uzbekistan U. Teshabaeva welcomed the guests and expressed her hope for further cooperation. “The Republic of Uzbekistan is an important partner of Romania in Central Asia. The dialogue between our countries is based on strong principles and values, on mutual respect and trust. We hope that this event will open the way to cooperation not only with the Embassy of Romania in Uzbekistan, but also with the libraries of this country ”.
The head of the delegation of the European Union E. Stiprais expressed his gratitude to the Romanian delegation for their conscientious work in the EU and said: “During the chairmanship of the Council of the European Union, Romania supported and assisted EU efforts and approaches towards the Eastern Neighborhood in promoting“ 20 achievements for 2020 ”and working on our shared priorities — stronger economy, stronger governance, closer ties, and a stronger society. ”
The event opened an exhibition of photographs of works of sculptor Constantin Brancusi and samples of the national culture of Romania.
The famous Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi was born on February 19, 1876 in Romania. At the early stage of his creative work, he created realistic portraits (stone, gypsum), but soon he became interested in the modern style, the decorative form, the transfer of the cut-off vibration. A characteristic feature of the art of Brancusi is the interest in a geometrically simplified, ascending to the archaic form and capacious imagery. Brancusi has always remained faithful to the natural beauty of Romanian folk art - wood carving. Brancusi's creativity entered the treasury of the artistic experience of the XX century. The master's works are kept in all the leading museums of the world, especially in Paris and in the USA.
Library users had the opportunity to get acquainted with samples of Romanian national clothing made from wool, hemp and flax. Here are men's pants, shirts, vests, women's dresses, as well as cords and braids to decorate clothes.
