Dutch experts could be deployed to Romanian borders

A solution to the Schengen accession impasse has to do with the existence of positive justice monitoring reports and with bilateral dialogue with The Netherlands, according to Foreign Minister Teodor Baconshi in an interview to RFI. The minister said that Romania has to increase The Netherlands’ confidence, possibly by direct cooperation at the borders. “We could have Dutch experts present, from this point of view. This possibility was discussed,” Baconschi said. He added that Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte will come to Bucharest next month and “we will have the opportunity to explain, to bring all arguments and find a compromise solution together.” As for Finland, which together with The Netherlands opposed Romania’s and Bulgaria’s Schengen accession last month, Baconschi said the country was more “sensitive to our arguments.” Meanwhile, the EP is expected to reiterate its support for Romania’s and Bulgaria’s Schengen accession in a special resolution this week. The resolution is expected to be discussed today, with a final vote scheduled tomorrow, Mediafax said.
