"As a minister, I intend to do everything possible to eliminate the infringement proceedings against Romania. Yesterday we were informed by the European Commission that we are in the second stage of the infringement procedure for delaying the communication of national measures for the transposition of European regulations. In the field of communications, this means that we have received a formal request to comply with EU law and we have 2 months to align. We will continue to work for the modernization of Romania and we are taking decisive steps towards alignment with European norms," Tanczos Barna was quoted as saying in a press release.
