FM warns politicians to not play with Schengen accession

Romania will fail in its bid to join the Schengen Area in case Parliament fails to ratify the government’s anti-corruption strategy and if the management of the National Anticorruption Office (DNA) and the National Integrity Agency (ANI) are replaced, Foreign Affairs Minister Cristian Diaconescu stated yesterday, the Foreign Affairs Ministry informs. “The Romanian Parliament has to approve the strategy of combating corruption during this Parliamentary session, not at another time. I want to make myself clearly understood by everybody: we won’t be able to attain our Schengen accession goals if Parliament fails to adopt the strategy of combating corruption. The Schengen goal is not the goal of a party or of a group of parties, the Schengen goal is Romania’s goal.  (…) Schengen accession greatly depends on the Parliament adopting the anti-corruption strategy during this sitting and maintaining the leaderships of the two institutions,” the minister underlined.
