Supreme Defence Council holds meeting

The Supreme Defence Council (CSAT) convened yesterday at the request of President Traian Basescu, to discuss several issues, such as Romania’s mandate at the November NATO summit in Lisbon, the EU Danube Strategy, Romania’s Schengen area accession, according to a press release from the presidential administration. The session lasted for two hours and no press statements were made afterwards.
This was the first CSAT meeting after a government reshuffle in early September, being the first for Finance Minister Gheorghe Ialomitianu and Economy Minister Ion Ariton. It was also the first CSAT meeting for Traian Igas, appointed interior minister earlier this week. Igas was supposed to present a report on an illegal police protest on September 24, as demanded by President Basescu. Sources who took part in the talks, quoted by Realitatea TV, said however the report was not discussed.
