President Klaus Iohannis said on Tuesday that there is currently no "plan" for Romania to enter an "austerity process".
He also stressed that he would not accept a new austerity "experiment".
"I do not believe and we do not have a plan to enter an austerity process for very simple reasons: we had the economic crisis from 2009 - 2010, 2011, where an attempt was made at European level to fight the crisis through austerity measures. The result was not a good one and I do not intend to accept a new experiment of this type with Romania," the head of the state told a press conference at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace. AGERPRES
