Romania was not ready to join the EU but nevertheless it was accepted just because it agreed to host two American military bases on its territory, Vladimir Voronin declared during a television show at NIT, quoted by Unimedia.

A mandatory EU request is that countries need to have all border issues resolved and Romania did not comply with this requirement because it does not have a border treaty with Moldova, Voronin declared.

Plus, Voronin said, the border represents the border between two big political constructions: NATO and the CSI countries.
