EP prepares resolution for Bulgaria, Romania accession to Schengen

The European Parliament is preparing a resolution for Romania and Bulgaria's accession to the Schengen Area.

The draft resolution that will be put to vote on 12 and 13 Oct. in Brussels, reads that the EP urges all EU countries to keep their commitments in connection with the legislative framework of the Bloc regarding the criteria for accession to Schengen, and to give up national populism.

The resolution has been prepared following the delay in the final voting for Bucharest and Sofia's accession to Schengen caused by the resistance put up by Holland and Finland during the meeting of EU interior ministers on 22 Sept.

The document advises member states to make a decision on the Schengen Area enlargement through Bulgaria and Romania's accession./Source: BNR/
