The European Commission defends the head of its Representation in Romania, Angela Cristea


The European Commission (EC) deems as "unacceptable" the personal attacks directed at the Head of the European Commission's office in Romania, Angela Cristea, said, in a statement on Monday, Deputy Chief Spokeswoman of the European Commission Mina Andreeva.

The statement comes as a response to alleged attacks in the press by the head of the Social Democrat Party (PSD) National Council, Mihai Fifor, towards the head of the European Commission's office in Romania.

"We expect our ambassador in Bucharest to be treated with the same respect as we treat the Romanian ambassador in Brussels. We will not allow our trusted ambassador to become the punching ball of domestic political controversy," the spokeswoman emphasized.

Brussels' reaction comes after Mihai Fifor said, in regards to Jean-Claude Juncker's statements on Romania's aptitude for taking over the Presidency, that Juncker "takes the Victoria Palace (the gov't seat, ed. n.) for the Cotroceni Palace" (the presidential administration's seat, ed. n.) and that the EC head has a "totally distorted" perception on what is happening in Romania because of Angela Cristea, head of the EC's Representation in Bucharest.
