  • [01] Attempt to solve PNL's emerging differences

    The president of the PNL branch in the county of Bacau, Valentin Gheorghe, said he would try to solve the emerging conflict betwee the party's leadership and PNL vicepresident Viorel Catarama. PNL deputy Valeriu Ghoerghe said that, along with Mr Catarama, the PNL leadership was invited to participate in a series of open and direct debates concerning the recent conflict between the two sides and the economic reform in the very next future. The leader of the Liberals in Bacau said he was confident that both the PNL leadership (excepting vicepresident Valeriu Stoica who is due in Italy shortly) and Mr Catarama would answer the invitation. He said the Bacau branch of the National Liberal Party (PNL) had the right to launch an initiative of the sort as Mr Catarama represented the Bacau county in the Romanian Senate. He added that, in his opinion, the emerging conflict between the two sides was rather unimportant. RADOR

The talks focused on details concerning economic cooperation and free trade areas in the region. The Romanian prime minister stopped however short of making any remark concerning the Bulgarian proposal of a second bridge between the two countries over the Danube. Romanian Transport Minister Traian Basescu said the Bulgarians were too much in a hurry to politicise the subject. The three prime ministers have expressed their concerns about recent developments in the Kosovo province of southern Serbia. Bulgarian Prime Minister Ivan Kostov supported the idea of a security ring to be created outside the Yugoslav borders while Turkish Prime Minister Mesut Yilmaz has reiterated his country's support for Romania's and Bulgaria's NATO membership.
