Bulgaria, Romania Schengen entry will be discussed in 2012

The potential accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the Schengen Agreement may not be discussed during the upcoming Justice and Home Affairs Council sitting, according to a high-level EU diplomat.

No signs of positive development can be seen, the diplomat who has insisted on retaining his anonymity has told dnevnik.bg. The diplomat’s comment followed last week’s announcement that the Netherlands has not changed its stance against the two EU newcomers’ bids to enter Europe’s border-free area.

The two country’s bids to enter the Schengen zone will thus remain to be decided on in 2012.
