BRUSSELS, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Liechtenstein, a tiny principality bordered by Switzerland and Austria, will join the passport-free Schengen area as its 26th member next Monday, according to the European Council in a press release on Tuesday.

Liechtenstein has fulfilled "all the necessary conditions" for the practical application of the relevant parts of the Schengen acquis, according to the council.

The council had already adopted a decision allowing for both the lifting of internal border controls with Liechtenstein at the land borders and the lifting of the current restrictions on the use of the Schengen Information System.
