“You know my opinion on the issue. We told people that with certain retirement age we will have a certain amount of the pension fund that will be divided between all pensioners,” the head of state said.
“This issue is not on the agenda today,” the President added. In his words, the number of working people who make social contributions from their salaries decreases every year. “People know the situation. There is no need to pitch this idea relentlessly,” the head of state added.
