Finland will follow the Netherlands’ examples and veto Bulgaria and Romania’s Schengen accession, Romania’s Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi has revealed after meeting his Dutch and Finnish counterparts.
“However, we need consensus and we need a positive vote on behalf of all EU member states,” Baconschi has declared after he met his colleagues at the UN General Assembly in New York.
“We all know what will happen at the EU Justice and Home Affairs Council meeting,” Baconschi said, as cited by Romanian media, referring to Bulgaria and Romania’s imminent fate.
“But there are other European meetings coming. I believe that if we work together and respect the rules, the bloc’s legislative requirements, we would find a way to unblock the situation,” he added.
