Former President Traian Basescu said on Monday in the debate in the Senate plenary on the draft law on the repatriation of gold that the initiative is "a big mistake" because in a crisis situation Romania will not know how to manage the gold more early London to show you have.
"Linked to the change of law and the law that only 5% of the gold reserve should be kept abroad, I think it is a big mistake. If this law is approved, NBR will be able to keep 5.3 tons of gold abroad as a guarantee I want to look at the reality.It seems to me today that we are above the limits of stability and resources.What is wrong.Please note that there are many international experts who foresee a new debt crisis in 2020-2021. perfectly possible due to the fact that after the crisis of 2008, 2009 the states, instead of reducing the debt, increased them, continuing with the loans. In a crisis situation, we will not know how to run as fast as possible with gold in London to show that we have reservations.My suggestion is to leave the duties of the NBR as they are from that point of view and do not have a political intervention at the moment when it seems to be right, but can knock one night off. "says Traian Basescu in the Plenum, according to Mediafax.
