Premier Victor Ponta has stated Tuesday that the Government he leads completely supports the objectives that Traian Băsescu has presented in Parliament. The Prime Minister has showed, though, that there would still be presidential advisers or analysts who would talk about how Romania is heading towards Russian and Kazakhstan.
“President Băsescu spoke in Parliament about Romania’s important objectives, which the Government supports completely. We are talking about the EU and NATO memberships, the strategic partnership with the United States, joining the Eurozone and the Schengen Area. These are fundamental objectives that the Government I am leading supports, and has set them in the government plan”, Ponta said.
“It is important for you to hear what the president of the country says, what the prime minister says. Obviously that does not mean that you won’t still be reading about all kind of presidential advisers or analysts who, either from stupidity, either out of dishonesty, are always talking about how we are heading I do not know where, to Russia, to Kazakhstan, or wherever”, the premier continued.
According to Ponta, Romania’s fundamental objectives are very clear and assumed by the President, Prime Minister and Government.
“Everything that is up to the Government to reach these fundamental objectives, we will do them. There are things that are not up to Romania, first – that are not up to the Government – which depend on a certain political climate in the EU countries and we still have to work on that ”, Ponta added.
President Traian Băsescu stated Tuesday, before the Parliament that the Schengen accession must become a priority objective Government-Parliament-Presidency and he proposed the appointment of the management of the General prosecution, the DNA without delay and the removal from the Cabinet of the ministers criminally investigated.
Băsescu proposed the Parliament and the Government a partnership for the achievement of the Schengen accession objective, considering it a “duty before the Romanians”.
