The Government and the authorities in Bucharest continue to express confidence that the vote to be given in Thursday's JHA Council will be a positive one, in favour of Romania's accession to the Schengen Area, Prime minister Nicolae Ciuca said at the gov't sitting, told Agerpres.
Premier Ciuca stressed that Romania has made efforts to meet all the requirements and standards of the Schengen acquis.
"This was de facto confirmed by the verification committees in October and November and, of course, by the other activities that our country has carried out and which it will certainly continue to carry out, because we firmly support everything that means European values and we will continue to support and fulfill the European values," Ciuca added.
"The fact that, at the moment, we all recognize that there is a migration problem, we must together find solutions to this matter, as well. Just presenting the problem does not solve the situation. As such, we also need Austria to understand that a solution is needed, not a technical solution, because it is very clear that there is availability for this, but also a political solution," Ciuca stressed.
