The meeting was attended also by the Transportation Minister and by the CNADNR leadership. At the end of the talks the Premier pointed out that the payment of the debt will be spaced out because the government can only pay approximately RON 200 M this year. “The solution is probably to pay the debts in relation to their age,” Ponta stated.
