Romanians to keep waiting for passport-free travel

In something of a kick in the teeth, the European Union has told Romanians and Bulgarians to keep waiting in line, when it comes to joining the Schengen zone of passport-free travel. Several countries had “reservations“, according to AFP. Perhaps concerned that such wordings were too diplomatic, the House of Lords in London said Romania shouldn’t have been admitted to the EU in the first place.

“The last six years indicate that post-accession conditionality achieves only slow progress. In future accessions, every effort must be made to ensure that all reforms are irreversible prior to accession, as post-accession mechanisms are both undesirable and unlikely to prove effective.”
