EP President Martin Schulz to meet Romanian PM Victor Ponta
European Parliament President Martin Schulz will meet Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta on Wednesday 11 July at 17.30 in the European Parliament in Brussels in the protocol room on the 9th floor of the Paul-Henri Spaak building. The meeting will focus on recent political events in Romania.
The meeting will be followed by a press point at 18.15 outside the protocol room.
On the eve of the meeting, President Schulz said:
"We are monitoring the events in Romania very closely. We seem to be witnessing a political fight of a surprising intensity between two irreconcilable camps.
Should there be any breaches of European rules and standards, the European Commission should take action immediately. We are a Union of shared values and legal standards, which must be respected by all of its members without exception. It is our duty to act if these are violated."
