    raising of obstacles

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "raising of obstacles" in the following sentence:

    They commented that it was not obvious that the same could be said about the raising of obstacles to cooperation by restricting or prohibiting reasonable financial relations between political parties in different countries or at the national level on the one hand and at the European or regional level on the other.


    Does "raising of obstacles" mean "removing/eliminating of obstacles"?

    Quite the opposite.
