ForMin Aurescu: Romania can hope for Germany’s firm support for Schengen accession as soon as possible

Minister of Foreign Affairs Bogdan Aurescu says Romania can hope for a “consistent and firm” support from Germany for the accession to the Schengen Area.

According to a press release sent by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), Bogdan Aurescu opened the Romanian-German Bilateral Cooperation Forum (FCBRG) on Sunday in Crit, on the sidelines of the 10th edition of the “Haferland Week” cultural festival, where topics regarding the very intense political dialogue and the Romanian-German exchanges at the economic level, the Romanian-German bilateral cooperation in social and cultural terms, as well as the possibilities of deepening the bilateral cooperation, including in the educational field, were addressed.

“I think it is very important, in the context of Romania’s strong and solidary action during this war in Ukraine, through the way we have managed the situation of over 1.75 million Ukrainian refugees who entered from the beginning of the war and until today Romania and which we have managed successfully, I think we can hope for consistent and firm support from Germany for Romania’s accession to the Schengen area as soon as possible, which is also important for the interpersonal relationship between Romania and Germany, between the ethnic Germans from Romania, with Germany, and vice versa, between the Romanian community in Germany and Romania,” emphasised Aurescu, in the speech delivered on this occasion, according to a Foreign Ministry press release.

He also revealed the privileged relation between Romania and Germany, in the context of the challenges facing the European Union.

“Romania and Germany at this moment are two states that think the same, that act the same and that want to carry forward the project of European integration. At the same time, we are finding solutions to many of the problems we are facing now,” Bogdan Aurescu also said, according to Agerpres.

This year’s Romanian-German Bilateral Cooperation Forum benefited from the partnership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and took place in the context of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty between Romania and the Federal Republic of Germany on friendly cooperation and partnership in Europe, as well as the 55th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Federal Republic of Germany and 150 years since the establishment of Romania’s first diplomatic mission in Berlin, reads the aforementioned release.
