PNL’s Chairman Orban meets President Iohannis; European Parliament election not on agenda of talks

Chairman of the National Liberal Party (PNL) alongside several members of the party met on Wednesday with President Klaus Iohannis.

“The main topic was the manner of running the Presidency of the Council of the EU, Romania’s priorities at European level, the manner in which I, the chairman of the PNL, can support the various priorities included on the agenda through the good relations that we have at the level of the EPP [the European People’s Party] group (…) and we also discussed about what we believe to be important in terms of the European events that are to be carried out in Romania. A meeting with the EPP group of the Committee of the regions will be held, as well as a meeting of the EPP, most probably on the sidelines of the European Council. There was no word related to the list to the European Parliament elections or on any other related topic of those that were falsely presented by sources,” Orban told Agerpres on Thursday.

He mentioned that several Liberals attended the meeting on Wednesday with President Klaus Iohannis.

“We were several [members of the PNL] (…). I won’t get into details regarding the venue. It wasn’t a secret meeting and it’s part of the normality, of the normal collaboration that exists between us, especially in respect to the European issue and the coordination on the European issue for improving Romania’s image, and in order to intervene in favour of Romania at European level,” Ludovic Orban mentioned.
