On Tuesday, the General Affairs Council today adopted its conclusions on the European Commission Co-operation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) progress reports on Bulgaria and Romania.

The conclusions emphasize the importance of a strong and sustained political will to take the actions necessary in accordance with the mechanism.
