Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta said "no irregularities" had been committed by companies in the country despite allegations that two abattoirs had duped European food companies by selling horsemeat as beef.

"We have made verifications...There exists no violation of European rules and standards" by the two abattoirs, Ponta told a news conference.
