France’s President Francois Hollande said Tuesday that in his conversations with Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis he approached the free movement of seconded workers and the European directive related to it, emphasising that France will not tolerate abuse.

“The freedom of seconded workers was a matter I’ve discussed with President Iohannis. That is a principle justifying the creation of Europe. (…) The principle of free movement does not mean abuse, excess, fraud or making use of illegally employed workers. We have had a discussion on the European directive regarding seconded workers, and together we have to make sure the directive will be useful to both economies. France will not tolerate abuses, and we started a discussion to find the necessary compromises,” Hollande told a Romanian-French business forum at Magurele.

Iohannis and Hollande on Tuesday toured the Magurele-based ELI-NP Research Centre at the Horia Hulubei National Nuclear Physics and Engineering Research and Development Institute.
