Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Kuneva and Prime Minister Boyko Borisov presented Wednesday a booklet on Bulgaria’s preparedness for accession to the Schengen Agreement.
Kuneva, as cited by the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency, made clear that the meetings of Borisov in Brussels with the heads of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the Council of the European Union had revealed that the country enjoyed top-level political support in Europe for joining the border-free area.
“As you know, sometimes the devil is in the details,” she declared.
Kuneva presented the booklet to her colleagues in the government, stressing that it contained clear evidence of Bulgaria’s readiness for Schengen accession, including documents and photos provided by the Interior Ministry.
Kuneva and Borisov announced that Bulgarian ministers and deputies would give away the “Bulgaria in Schengen” booklet as a gift during their visits to EU countries.
Kuneva noted that it would be translated in English and urged the Foreign Ministry to do everything possible to make sure that EU countries were aware of Bulgaria’s achievements in the sphere.
Borisov insisted that the booklet had to be translated in German, Dutch, and French too.
At the end of last month, Kuneva warned that the upcoming report of the European Commission under the Co-operation and Verification Mechanism would be very harsh on Bulgaria as the comparison with Romania would not be in our favor.
She suggested that the Schengen bids of the two countries could be treated separately.
