Congratulations Mr. Minister:
In his honor, Mr. Borrell, today the rroma of Spain are singing and dancing through ‘bulerías’. And the almost 800,000 Rroma and Rroma of Hungary are celebrating in their honor by recalling their wonderful folklore to which Franz Lizt attributed Rroma origin. And from Russia to the Balkans, through Greece and Romania, the 10 million rroma that populate the old Europe we feel happy and hopeful for his appointment.

We are pleased to know that your position as High Representative for Foreign Policy will see your expanded competencies in humanitarian aid and the attention that the suffering of so many people, including many Roma families, who integrate into foreign immigration.
