Half empty, half full bottle in European Commission report on Romania and Bulgaria

Miercuri, 27 iunie 2007, 0:00

The European Commission presents on Wednesday its report on the progress made by Romania and Bulgaria after their accession to the EU on January 1, 2007.
In Bucharest, Justice Minister Tudor Chiuariu, sees the full half of the bottle, according to a press release issued after meeting the Bundestag vice president, Susanne Kastner, mentioning that the report "will record the progress made in the anti-graft campaign, which must be continued and intensified".

In Brussels and the international media, things aren't all that glittering, details of the report being published before it was even officially presented. Sources say that Romania and Bulgaria "duck" the activation of safeguarding clauses, but can't escape a rather rough tone of the EC because of all the delays in reforming Justice and fighting corruption.

Chiuariu's optimistic attitude isn't shared by Brussels officials. Reuters noted on Tuesday that three European Commissioners - Leonard Orban, Meglena Kuneva and Franco Frattini - objected to the rough tone of the report, but that the same tone was supported by most EC members.

RFI and Radio Holland confirmed that the green light for Romania and Bulgaria "turned yellow".
