Germany Ready to Continue Romania, Bulgaria's Schengen Accession Talks
Tuesday, 10 March 2015
Berlin is ready to go on with talks that will eventually result in Romania and Bulgaria's accession into the Schengen area without border control, the German Foreign Minister has said.
The country's top diplomat was on a visit to Romania March 9 prior to meeting his counterpart in Bulgaria, an event scheduled for Tuesday morning.
"We are continuing to work hard so that the countries which are not members of Schengen meet the accession conditions," DW quoted Steinmeier as saying in a press conference with his counterpart Bogdan Aurescu.
In his words, the EU Commission's latest report underlines the progress achieved by both countries in boosting the judiciary.
