President Klaus Iohannis stated on Tuesday evening that he doesn't think Prime Minister Viorica Dancila would refuse him if he were to attend the Government meetings, in order to discuss "matters concerning Romania, which fall under the responsibility of the Government."

"Yes, I will go. You can see that Mrs. Prime Minister once every three or four public discourses had peace messages. She invited me to collaborate and now I am willing to collaborate, since this is an extremely important matter. The Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union is a very complicated matter, very hard and I want us to do well and I stated that we are ready, but in order to remain ready, and also have results, we need to discuss these things. For instance, a really urgent matter right now and I asked to be immediately introduced on the agenda is Brexit. There is a real risk that we have a Brexit without an agreement and, in that case, several hundreds of thousands of Romanians will remain with an uncertain status. These are things that we must discuss. We cannot afford to just wait and discuss them after the holidays. There are a lot of arguments and, honestly, I don't believe that she will refuse me, if I were to go to discuss together at the Government matters that are related to Romania and fall under the responsibility of the Government," stated Iohannis.
