In a recent interview to Agerpres, Secretary General of the Council of Europe (CoE) Thorbjorn Jagland voices satisfaction over the fact that Romania has not taken the same route in the European elections as France and other countries did, setting a good example and showing that there is a culture in Romania of not going with the flow. Jagland argues that the explanation for this is the fact that Romania already experimented extreme political behaviour and does not want to repeat the experience. He also says there is more tolerance in this part of Europe for ethnic and religious diversity.
