Italy supports Romania’s Schengen access

The Romanian Ambassador in Rome, Dana Constantinescu, has said that Italy intends to support Romania’s accession to Schengen

2013-11-24 15:25:51 - From the Print Edition

The statement comes within the context of Italy taking on the presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2014. The official added that Romanian and Italian bilateral links are excellent and mature. "The relationship between Romania and Italy has grounds in historical and cultural common roots and affinities," Constantinescu said.
Recently, the EU chief, Jose Manuel Barroso, told a French TV show that Romania and Bulgaria could not expect to enter the Schengen area in January 2014. "It is an incredible amalgamation between Schengen, immigration, Lampedusa and foreign workers, an amalgamation that should be denounced before extremist movements impact European countries. Regarding Romania and Bulgaria's accession to Schengen, it cannot happen on January 1 next year because there are countries opposed to this," said the EC president.
In an interview in September with a Bulgarian radio station, Barroso affirmed that both countries had met the accession conditions and were expected to receive the green light soon. President Traian Basescu said that the European Council had decided to consider the Schengen accession but this would be influenced by the conclusion of MCV report.
