With only one amendment.! Don’t applaud before you hear the amendment: equal autonomy in Odorheiul Secuiesc as well as in Tulcea or Caracal”. That moment, the audience interrupted the president speech booing and whistling. “ This shows your capacity for dialogue. I came to you for dialogue” Basescu said. “ For those who consider autonomy as being the element to introduce passport on the national territory of Romania – I want to tell you this is wrong. Romania is a national, sovereign, independent state whose territorial integrity cannot be affected”.
