Uganda: EU Will Support Courageous Policy Change

On Monday, the European Union delegation in Uganda hosted guests at its ambassador's residence in Kololo to celebrate Europe day. Below is the slightly-edited speech delivered by Ambassador Kristrian Schmidt, in which he reiterated the value of embracing change. Welcome to Europe day. As you know, it is the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration. Sixty six years ago, it called for the unification of Europe. Today, we Europeans celebrate the vision of living together in peace. Today, we stand united. Let me recognize my colleagues from the EU member states resident here in Kampala, from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and the head of Austrian Cooperation office. And the honorary consuls of Spain, Hungary and Romania. We are already many, but our Union is neither closed, nor are we united against anyone. On the contrary, new members may still join us. And we pray no-one leaves.
