Prime Minister Ludovic Orban on Friday denied the information according to which the government at some point discussed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to conclude a loan agreement.
“There are two types of agreements with the IMF. We have an agreement with the IMF capped at two billion on a fund meant for (financing deficit). And this is the other type of loan everybody knows about that implies restructuring and a series of cost reductions. We have never discussed the possibility of an agreement with the IMF,” Orban stated in Drobeta Turnu-Severin, where he answered a series of questions.
He also gave an assurance that a balance between revenues and expenditures must be kept, to avoid any deviations.
Prime Minister Ludovic participated in the presentation of the project of the new Romgaz-GSP Power thermal power plant in the village of Halanga, the Izvoru Barzii rural town, near Drobeta Turnu Severin.
Orban, about relaxation of restrictions: I am thinking to allow protests, under certain terms
Prime Minister Ludovic Orban on Friday stated, responding to a question related to the relaxation of restrictions, that he is thinking to allow protests, under certain terms, with a limited number of participants and the observance of health protection measures.
“I have been thinking about allowing protests, under certain terms. Of course, with certain rules, a limited number of participants, who need to wear masks. I saw some malicious comments that have nothing to do with our government. Our government has always been open to dialogue and it has never been afraid of public gatherings,” Orban said while paying a visit to Drobeta Turnu-Severin.
The Prime Minister informed, a day ago, that the Government would adopt a decision on Monday to prolong the state of alert on the Romanian territory.
