I was a member in the committee on budget of the EP [the European Parliament] and I know in detail these aspects. We need to discuss there about the additional funds earmarked to Romania and we need to discuss there about a simplification of the accessing procedures of these European money, too, a negotiation obviously implies to have in Brussels people who know these details, suitable people in the right place and people who are willing to fight for Romania," Negrescu stated.
Victor Negrescu was a MEP from the PSD between 2014-2017, when he resigned in order to take over the Minister-delegate for European Affairs office.
