Several cultural events take place in Chisinau and in Moldova's localities, celebrating the national holiday Limba Noastra (Our Language) today.
On celebration’s occasion, in the morning, President, Igor Dodon, Speaker, Andrian Candu, Prime Minister, Pavel Filip, MPs and ministers, representatives of local authorities, scientists, people of culture and arts laid flowers at the monument of ruler Stefan cel Mare si Sfant and the busts of the writers on the Alley of Classics of the Romanian Literature in Chisinau.
Interviewed by the agency, academician Mihai Cimpoi mentioned that the Romanian Language Day has been a great celebration for all Moldovan citizens, because, as Eminescu said, “we are not the masters of the language, but the language is our master”.
"I am glad that in the recent years the Romanian language is spoken better by our fellow citizens. When I say this, I think of the younger generation, my students who demonstrate eloquently the good knowledge of the Romanian language. The Romanian language should be like a mirror, in which all the achievements realised in the years of the liberation and national revival movement are reflected," said academician Mihai Cimpoi.
Also today, in the Azure Hall of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (ASM) took place the festive meeting of the general assembly dedicated to the National Day of the Romanian Language Day.
