Balkans |  Croatia’s support for Romania’s accession to Schengen

Croatian Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said that his country supports Romania’s accession to the Schengen area.

Croatian Interior Minister Davor Bozinović met with Romanian Interior Minister Lucian Bud, who is in Zagreb for official contacts.

Speaking at the joint press conference, Bozinovic stated that Croatia is included in the Schengen Area as of January 1.

Buzinovic said: “We are in favor of Romania’s accession to Schengen. This is important for both Romania and the European Union (EU). We will try to express this at every opportunity. He said.

Noting that there has been an increase in irregular migration crossings with the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bozinovic said, “We are struggling to comply with the necessary rules at the immigration point, where no one has a goal to stop.” He said.

On the other hand, Bud said they discussed strengthening cooperation between the two countries and the difficulties they face.

Bud explained that they exchanged views with his Croatian counterpart on regional, international and European issues, and said that the entire region is facing the crisis resulting from the Russian aggression against Ukraine. During the meeting, I emphasized the expectation that Romania wants to become a member of Schengen this year. The many sensitive domestic issues raised by different countries to justify the rejection of Romania’s Schengen candidacy cannot be considered as serious problems.” Use the phrase.

Bud thanked Croatia for its support in joining Schengen, adding that he would support his police units to deploy to the region during the summer months in connection with the growing number of Romanian tourists on Croatian beaches.
