The safeguarding clause could become unnecessary, FM Diaconescu says

Foreign Affairs Minister Cristian Diaconescu declared on Sunday evening, during an interview for RFI Romania, that EU Foreign Affair Ministers could discover the “uselessness” of the safeguarding clause that threatens Romania since it joined the EU in 2007.

“We are in a process of dialogue in order to present an accurate position at the European Council on September 14–15, regarding the futility of the safeguarding clause, as I might call it. It is not a firm decision, but I may say it is very possible, as we are approaching a positive version from this perspective,” Diaconescu declared.

Asked whether the futility of the safeguarding clause could lead to its removal, Diaconescu said: “As you might know, after three years since the application of this political decision reached by the EU, the clause expires this year. There is no reason it should be prolonged. As The HNetherlands declared, the conclusions of the Council on September 15–16 will go along with our evaluations,” the Minister claimed.
