Ministry: Romania meets Schengen accession requirements.

By bne IntelliNews January 17, 2011
An evaluation report, drafted by EU expert teams, confirms that the country fully meets the requirements for a timely entry in the Schengen agreement in April and it was approved almost unanimously on Friday by all member states, except for France, which requested more time to assess the document, the Romanian foreign ministry announced. The final vote will take place on January 28. The Schengen evaluation group SCH-EVAL debated last Friday on three documents regarding Romanias and Bulgarias accession to the Schengen agreement, out of which one concerned Romanias Schengen-integrated information system - Supplementary Information REquested at the National Entries (SIS-SIRENE). This was the last evaluation report on Romania, after all other reports have already been approved. Bulgaria, which supposed to join the Schengen agreement together with Romania in April, reportedly needs to address issues with its terrestrial border with Turkey.
