US first lady Jill Biden praises Romanians for support shown to displaced Ukrainians

Jill Biden, the first lady of the United States (US), started her brief European tour in Romania, attending several events in Bucharest and Constanta on May 6 and May 7. 

She arrived in Romania on Friday, May 6, when she went to the Mihail Kogălniceanu military base, close to Constanta. She met with the American soldiers stationed there. 

The next day, she met with the Romanian president's wife, Carmen Iohannis. Together, the two visited a Bucharest school where Ukrainian children displaced by the war take classes and talked to them and their families.

"I am grateful to know that the Romanian people have taken these families into their homes and into their hearts," she tweeted after the visit.

Jill Biden also met with the staff of the United States Embassy in Romania, as well as with Madalina Turza, an adviser to prime minister Nicolae Ciuca, and coordinator of humanitarian assistance for refugees.

"There are many dimensions and messages to Jill Biden's visit. We are talking first of all about a geopolitical message - the fact that the US is paying attention to Romania and that, at the same time, it is concerned about the fate of Ukrainian refugees in Romania," political analyst Radu Magdin explained for daily Adevarul.
