"I regret we could not end the PSD phase faster, because Romania, with the PSD in power, lost countless opportunities, also internationally, opportunities at European level, but also important economic opportunities, which were missed because of the way in which the PSD has acted and governed. There have been complicated years for Romania and I think at this point I can say that I have succeeded in these years, although the PSD has been in power, as I have described, I have managed to keep Romania on the clear Euro-Atlantic line, I have avoided deep crises in Romania and I honestly wish I had the opportunity to work with a government in the service of Romanians, to take Romania forward," said the head of state, asked about the regrets he has regarding his mandate.
