European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso favours quick EU accession


European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said on May 14 he favored the accession of candidate countries Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union as soon as possible. Barroso told the BBC that he believes Bulgarian and Romanian membership is good for Europe and good for the countries themselves, provided they meet all the criteria, including questions of fighting corruption and organized crime. Romania and Bulgaria are hoping to receive approval at the European Commission meeting in Brussels on May 16 to join in January 2007.
