Bulgaria is once again under the supervision of the European Commission for the Rule of Law after Brussels ceased to control it through annual reports in 2019. The renewal of surveillance has become tacit with Bulgaria’s consent to apply for Schengen again.
The news was noticed by the BTA, which turned attention to a statement by the Official Foreign Minister Nikolay Milkov, who, on January 27, gave a report to the media about what he had done in his post.
The Official Foreign Minister pointed out that Bulgaria will be the subject of a new report that will sum up the country’s achievements since 2019. around when the European Commission stopped writing reports on it. He said this latest report should show progress regarding the rule of law.
“If no progress is made, this could further create a problem for the Bulgarian bid when it begins to be considered mid-year,” Nikolay said in his reports of his mandate. The separation of Bulgaria from Romania for Schengen is a real perspective.
Due to a widespread issue with the flow of illegal immigration, Bulgaria and Romania have long tried to join Schengen but have consistently been rejected. Although migration is a problem for all of Europe, major nations like Germany and the Netherlands have always targeted Bulgaria and Romania as sources of rising migration.
According to the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania as the two most corrupt nations in Europe in 2022, the Netherlands throws a barrier in their entry into the Schengen area. Croatia joined Schengen in January 2023, yet the country still experiences high levels of immigration.
Numerous refugees cross into Europe illegally, but every time, Bulgaria and Romania are blamed for the issue, which prevents them from accessing the Schengen area.
