Presidential irony

President Basescu said Friday in Brussels that he might delegate PM Ponta to attend the Oslo ceremony in which the EU will be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. Asked by journalists if he will go to Oslo – as the president of the European Council invited the EU heads of state and government on this occasion – Basescu laughingly answered: “Do you want me to boast about a distinction which…? What did I do to obtain this title? I think I will delegate Mr. Ponta.” The president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy invited the leaders of all 27 European states to go to Oslo in December for the awarding for the Nobel Prize for Peace, won by the European Union last week.
