In his opinion, there are no differences between Romanians and Hungarians as regards the social-economic rights. „The crisis has affected all,” he said.
Geoana pointed out that there are European norms regarding the minority rights in a country but that „certain limits have been exceeded in this case and that must be said out loud. (…) They exaggerate,” Geoana said.

Boc says that PSD will be PDL’s partner if it wants reform PM Emil Boc, president of the Democratic-Liberal Party, PD- L, said, on Friday, at the summer school of the PD-L, in Costinesti, south-east, Black Sea, that the Social-Democrats will remain the partners of the Democrat-Liberals, at rule, if they back up the reforms initiated by the Executive.
Asked whether the ministers of the Social-Democratic Party, PS-D, are the partners of PD-L, Boc said that „each has the ball in its own field.”
„Those willing to be together with the reform of the state are our partners, those who will not say that and will not do that are not our partners. My conclusion is simple:
our priorities are those related to the reform of the state and the management of the lives of the Romanians. In this period of crisis, in the sense of managing it in the best possible way.
Those who are close to this objective of the government, of Romania, of the ruling programme of carrying out the reform of the state which others did not have the courage to carry out for 20 years are our partners.
The others, who do not want this, will not be our partners,” Boc also said.
The Democratic-Liberal leader added that the ministers and the other political leaders sit for their own exam. „Each of them sits for his or her own exam,” said the prime minister.
