Romania opposes two-speed Europe: PM


08:51, December 06, 2011

BUCHAREST, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- Europe does not need to be divided between the euro area and the non-euro area, Romanian Prime Minister Emil Boc said on Monday when talking with the visiting Danish counterpart Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

"We do not believe in a two-speed Europe," Boc said, adding that he hoped a decision regarding Romania's accession to the border-free Schengen area will be taken during the Danish EU presidency.

Helle Thorning-Schmidt is on a visit to Romania to present the priorities of the future Presidency of the European Union, which will be taken over by Denmark on January 1.

The Danish prime minister underscored in her turn that supporting Romania's Schengen entry has been included in the government program of the newly installed Danish Cabinet and Romanian authorities may count on Denmark's help in this process.

According to the Danish official, the current government and the former one found common ground during negotiations on the government program regarding support for Romania's Schengen bid.
