He went to the hospital on Friday, and doctors advised him to stay in for further investigations and treatment.
Spokesman for Elias Hospital, Dr. Silvius Negoita, told AGERPRES that Ion Iliescu is conscious and cooperating.
"His older heart problems suffer a new decompensation and it was decided for him to stay in the hospital for further investigations and treatment.
