Tariceanu "lies so much" that he must be ignored when claiming "I don't know, I have received nothing". This is what the President of Romania Traian Basescu said yesterday. He claimed that, if the PM hadn't been informed by the MAE (Ministry of foreign Affairs), he should revoke the foreign minister. The President had said it when recording the talk show for Pro TV yesterday, before the Romanian PM had demanded foreign minister Mihai Razvan Ungureanu to resign. The PM's attitude may have been counterattack to the President's late offensive.
Basescu commented: "It is impossible that the foreign minister should send information to the President of Romania, but not to the prime minister. If so, if the PM wasn't informed, he should revoke the foreign minister."
PM Tariceanu replied: "My decision to ask the minister to resign is the best proof that I don't lie. It's the President who is guided by other criteria." (R.A.)
