European Commission has "favorable opinion" on the accession of Bulgaria and Romania

On 22 February the European Commission adopted a "favorable opinion" on the accession of Bulgaria and Romania, expressing its confidence that the two countries will "pursue the reforms that need to be carried out in view of their accession".

The EU's official website quoted Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn that the decision is "another milestone in our relations and a clear signal that the commission welcomes Bulgaria and Romania in the European family. However, the authorities in the countries can not lie back and relax: a lot of hard work will be needed to progress on reforms in order to fully and timely meet all conditions for membership."
