The European parliament prepares a scathing report according to which Romania and Bulgaria would weaken the European Union. The report, compiled in response to a Commission report focusing on future waves of EU enlargement, is due to be discussed in the Foreign

Affairs Committee of the EP on Thursday.

The head of the EP committee, Elmar Brok, would show Romania and Bulgaria were not yet in full compliance with EU membership criteria and overburdens the internal capacities of the European Union, with

negative consequences on the European domestic and international stability.

And the advantages the two countries bring to the EU would not compensate the disadvantages of this wave of enlargement, he would shop.

Brok is known in Strasbourg as a traditional opponent of Romania’s accession in the EU.
