Predoiu: France most reserved over Romania’s Schengen accession

Justice Minister Catalin Predoiu stated on Saturday for TVR that the strongest reticence concerning Romania’s Schengen accession comes from France, the latter having a series of general concerns with the ever more pressing flow of migrants but also a series of reserves in its bilateral relationship with the Romanian state. Referring to the comments of a known French journalist who recently said that “if Romania and Bulgaria enter the free movement area they will be guarding two of the particularly difficult borders: with the Republic of Moldova and with Turkey, plus the maritime border, all of which represent gateways for illegal immigrants from the whole former Soviet space and the Afghanistan-Pakistan area, with human trafficking, drug trafficking, money laundering, arms trafficking and even the trafficking of nuclear elements on top of that,” Predoiu stated that this is a duty Romania is already fulfilling.
