“We Want to Enter Schengen,” Bulgarian President Tells Corriere della Sera

Bulgaria wants to enter the Schengen Area which is one of the best achievements of the European Union, the country’s President Rosen Plevneliev has said in an interview with Italian daily Corriere della Sera.
Plevneliev was on a working visit to Italy on 27-28 January.
“Schengen is one of the best results of the EU, a milestone that defines who we are,” Plevneliev said. “It is the dream of all European citizens to travel around Europe without passports.”
Bulgaria is faced with numerous crises, which are taking place near its borders, but the country has managed to fulfil its obligations as a member of the EU, Plevneliev said.
“Bulgaria continues to play its important role as a country located at a crossroads,” Plevneliev said. “We know who we are and where we go: we are for Europe."
He stressed that Bulgaria is among the EU countries which oppose the creation of internal borders. The introduction of border controls on the external frontiers of the EU is a necessary measure but it only provides a temporary solution to the migrant crisis.
