MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) — Minister of Public Health and Social development Tatyana Golikova is hoping the position of her ministry on inexpediency of raising the retirement age will prevail in the discussion on the matter that has begun recently.
Golikova's ministry and the Finance Ministry -- which calls for raising the retirement age -- have presented their positions before the meeting of the State Council on Tuesday. "Now we have to work out a coordinated document by October 1," the minister said.
A public discussion of the problem will run in the meantime. "We hope we'll put our foot down. Age is not the criterion which solves all problems in the pension system," she said.
