Romanian PM seeks EU meeting on far-right

Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Razvan Ungureanu called Wednesday for an extraordinary EU summit to answer the rising influence of far-right and anti-European parties in Europe.

“I think the time has come to discuss frankly how Europe can react to the electoral rise of far-right parties”, Ungureanu said.

“I think we should have an extraordinary EU summit to openly discuss what is happening and how we can react to support pro-European policies,” he added saying Europe “needs to become conscious of the far-right danger”.

The Romanian PM will meet tomorrow with the European Union president Herman van Rompuy and the president of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso.
