Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca said on Tuesday that there were no signs at this point that other major producers were in the same situation as Azomures, which announced on Monday that it would temporarily stop production due to high natural gas and electricity prices, agerpres reports."We have been discussing this issue since the end of last week, we have discussed with the Minister of Energy, with the Minister of Agriculture, because the production from Azomures is very necessary for agricultural producers. Yesterday we had a discussion on this topic and the next step will be that decision factors continue to analyze the situation and the real reasons behind this period of production shutdown and, of course, together we will find solutions.
