Romania and Bulgaria should enter the Schengen Agreeement together, Romania’s Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi has stated.
“Romania can not enter Schengen without Bulgaria, since the two states are parts of one and the same enlargement package,” Baconschi said. The Romanian Foreign Minister was optimistic about both countries entering Europe’s border-free zone in the near future. Bulgaria and Romania’s Schengen accession is a priority for Hungary’s EU Presidency, he pointed out.
On Monday, Hungary confirmed its commitment to Romania and Bulgaria’s Schengen entry by the end of its term in June.
