I would like to discourage speculations that were made and make it clear that all my declarations for daily Adevarul has nothing to do with Croatia, Baconschi said. He underlined that he said that a new EU member state will join without the mechanism being annexed and that Romania for five years a member already cannot see when the mechanism will be ended.
