Iohannis: Budget approach lacks needed responsibility in security context

President Klaus Iohannis sent a letter to Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu drawing the attention that the approach on the budget construction doesn't prove the responsibility that the political and institutional commitments require in the current regional and international security context, according to Agerpres.

"In the context of the debates on the budget allotments to the main credit release authorities, I note the fact that, for the national security area, except for the National Defence Ministry budget, all the other budgets witness reductions from the 2016 budget execution, some of these reductions being significant," said Iohannis. "I am drawing the attention that this approach on the budget construction doesn't prove the responsibility that are required from us, as a country and state, by the assumed political and institutional commitments, as well as the existing risks and vulnerabilities in the current regional and international security context."

He maintains that, in the context in which the general consolidated budget draft for 2017 provides an increase in overall expenses from 2016, accounting for almost 31 billion RON (6,8 billion Euro), which represents an over 15 per cent increase from the expenditure made in 2016, the reduction in the budgets for the national security area isn't only unjustified, but completely inopportune.

The head of state notes that in respect to the budget devoted to the National Defence Ministry, although there is an additional allotment from 2016, up to round 1.5 percent of the GDP, the firmly assumed commitments both by the Government leadership and that of the Social Democratic Party (PSD) aren′t observed, on ensuring a 2 percent of the GDP budget, according to the governance programme and the 2015 agreement, agreed on with the entire political spectrum.
