Romanian Prime Minister Călin Popescu-Tăriceanu's visit to Budapest

On his visit to Budapest, his first official visit abroad, Romanian Prime Minister Calin Popescu-Tariceanu agreed with Hungarian premier Ferenc Gyurcsany on 17 January that their cabinets would meet annually to discuss political and environmental problems.

Gyurcsany announced that the planned long-stay visas in Hungary would not be granted on ethnic grounds, but on the basis of "nationality," and any citizen of neighboring countries planning to stay in Hungary for extended periods would be eligible to apply.

Popescu-Tariceanu and Gyurcsany also agreed that Romania had to respect European environmental standards when deciding on the controversial Rosia-Montana gold-mining project.
