PM: Don't expect "millions of Romanians" in 2014

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) - Romania's prime minister says that Britain should not expect "millions of Romanians" to arrive in the country after it lifts work restrictions for Romanians and Bulgarians on Jan. 1

Victor Ponta said he had presented British Prime Minister David Cameron with "independent studies that show very clearly that there won't be a wave of millions of Romanians who will head to Great Britain after Jan. 1"

Ponta said fears that Britain would be inundated by Romanians in 2014 were motivated by "media and radical and populist politicians." He made the comments on TV station Antena 3 late Monday.

He recently said Romanians prefer to work in countries like Spain and Italy where people speak a Latin-based language like Romanian.
