Romania belongs to the Schengen area since the country fully fulfills all the accession technical criteria while all the other “doubts on this level are strictly related to political reasons,” Romanian president Klaus Iohannis told foreign ambassadors in Bucharest on January 29.

“Romania’s complete Europeanisation is a central objective of my office which means a continuation of the European integration process through accession to the Schengen area and adoption of the euro single currency. Romania’s place is in the Schengen area as a member state with equal and full rights. We fully fulfill the accession criteria, any doubts on this level are strictly related to political reasons,” Iohannis told the foreign ambassadors.
