The diplomat and director for EU Affairs of PanEurope – Bulgaria, Biserka Benisheva, commented in the morning block of Euronews Bulgaria on the subject of the Road to Schengen.
I am moderately optimistic that today’s decision will be favorable and non-discriminatory for Bulgaria. Many opinions were expressed, but in the end we have support from 25 countries. I also include the member countries of the Schengen area, which are not members of the EU – Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein. We have two countries that are skeptical. A majority is more likely to prevail, convincing both skeptical parties of the benefits for the EU of a positive decision to give a time frame for lifting internal borders.
