EP Head Advocates Romania’s Admission To Schengen
Roberta Metsola, the speaker of the European Parliament, thinks it was wrong to deny Romania’s bid to join Schengen. She declared that the EP would keep fighting for the nation’s admission to the Schengen region.
« Schengen membership for Romania. For the past 11 years, this has been the situation. It was a wrong choice to deny the application. A united, secure, and equitable Europe is what the European Parliament will continue to fight for, » she tweeted.
She also made an appeal to Romanians. « Keep trying for Europe. Schengen will include Romania. You have the support of the European Parliament, » Ms. Metsola wrote.
On December 8, the EU rejected Romania’s and Bulgaria’s Schengen applications while approving Croatia’s. Romania and Bulgaria joining Schengen was opposed by Austria.
