GAERC urges Romania, Bulgaria to step up efforts for meeting MCV pledges

The European Union foreign ministers at a meeting in Brussels on Monday and Tuesday urged Romania and Bulgaria to step up the efforts for meeting ‘without delay’ the pledges made under the Mechanism of Cooperation and Verification (MCV) and prove ‘concrete, long-lasting results’, particularly in the areas highlighted in the last report of the European Commission on MCV.

Adopting the conclusions on the European Commission’s July report related to the progress made by Romania and Bulgaria under the MCV, the General Affairs and External Relations Council (GAERC) ‘congratulates the Commission for its work and for the methodology followed’ and ‘fully shares the objectives and the balanced analysis’ contained in the reports on the two EU members.

Reminding the importance of the unequivocal political will and of the determination for a more decisive strategic approach in order to take the required measures, the Council hails the commitment re-affirmed by Bulgaria and Romania and recognises the efforts made by the two member states in order to achieve the progress needed to attain the objectives set under the Mechanism, the GAERC conclusions say.

The EU foreign ministers underscored the need for each member state to have an unbiased administrative and judicial system, that should also be independent and efficient, with sufficient resources so as to allow the adequate enforcement of the EU policies meant to guarantee that the citizens ‘have access to all the benefits and opportunities offered by their membership of the Union’.
