The day of Europe is celebrated today. Foreign Affairs Minister of France Robert Schuman delivered a speech in Paris, on May 9, 1950, where he proposed the idea of European integration. Thus, 9 May is celebrated as the birthday of the European Union.

Its implementation started in 1951, when the European Coal and Steel Union was founded with a participation of the 6 countries (France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg). Nowadays, the European Union includes 25 countries.

According to the other sources, May 5 is also considered as a day of European Union, as in 1949, the statute of the European Council was signed in London on May 5. It came into force on August 3 of the same year and for today, it is considered as Europe’s one of the largest representative consultative organization. More than 50 countries, including Georgia, are united in the European Council.
