The Joint Strategic Command of Transition (CCOET) through the Department of Historical Memory and Museums (DEMEM) led this Tuesday, January 24, a Wreath-laying ceremony to the bust of Romanian Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza, founder of the State of Romania, on the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Installation of The Statue In Colombian Territory.


This is how, on January 24, Romania commemorates the union of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldova that took place in the mid-nineteenth century, giving rise to the embryo of the country Romania. As a state that emerged from the echoes of the Revolution of 1848, the traditional great powers opposed the birth of the modern Romania, finally, with the mediation of Napoleon III, the European powers accepted the creation of the United Principalities, although they defended that Wallachia and Moldova would continue to function as two separate states with their own government, their prince and their legislative assembly.


In these circumstances, the parliamentary Assemblies initiated the process of electing the princes, in both principalities Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza was chosen (on January 5 in Moldova and on January 24 in Wallachia of 1859), becoming a common prince for both Principalities and unifying them de facto.


On the other hand, in 1993 the statue of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza was inaugurated in the Military Museum of Bogotá and in reciprocity, in 1994, the statue of the Colombian hero General Francisco Paula Santander was inaugurated in the National Military Museum of Bucharest, in Romania and we in the same way remember that in a central Square of Bucharest, there is the bust of the Liberator Simón Bolívar.


In order to honor them, we commemorate their work year after year in this small, but heartfelt ceremony at the La Candelaria Military Museum. The CCOET through its social media accounts will inform the details of this event.
