Czech Presidency of EU Council pushes Romania’s Schengen membership

The Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU summoned the interior ministers from Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia, on September 13, in Prague, to tackle the three countries’ accession to Schengen, Romanian MEP Rareș Bogdan announced.

„Czech deputy prime minister Vit Rakušan, also minister of the Interior, stated a few minutes ago in the European Parliament’s LIBE (Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs) Committee that one of the ambitions of the Czech Presidency of the EU is to speed up the procedures regarding the accession of Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia,” Rareș Bogdan (PNL) wrote on his Facebook page.

„Measures must be taken so that Romania and Bulgaria, which meet the technical conditions since 2011, can benefit from this status,” he added.

He emphasized that „everything depends on the second round of this discussion, scheduled for the end of September.”
