Opinions lean towards Schengen accession for Bulgaria and Romania

Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov commented for the Bulgarian National Radio that the Schengen enlargement talks continued and that opinions leaned towards giving Bulgaria and Romania a horizon for accession to the Schengen area. An important argument in favour of their accession is that as outer borders of the EU and in order to attain 100 percent efficiency in intercepting the transiting of what are known as foreign militants between Europe and the conflict regions in the Middle East, the two countries must have full access to the Schengen information system. Secondly, all previous progress reports on how the criteria for Schengen membership have been met, have been positive, at the same time there has been no real progress with regard to our membership as such, Minister Mitov said.
