Romania says is ready to accept EU police on its border for Schengen bid

Romania is ready to accept EU police on its borders in order to show it is fit to join Europe’s passport-free zone.

Marian Tutilescu, state secretary in the Interior Ministry, said Romania had launched the idea of using joint teams of customs officers, including police from Western countries, three months ago.

“But it’s only now that it seems to have been accepted by our partners, France included,” he said, following an official meeting on Tuesday with France’s Interior Minister, Claude Gueant.
