Croats are allowed in, Bulgarians and Romanians stay out. Austria in particular prevented Bulgaria and Romania from joining the Schengen area. It is wrong to expand a system that does not work, said the Austrian interior minister, with a view to the increasing number of asylum seekers. All three countries “exceed” the requirements, as the responsible EU Commissioner says. No wonder Bulgaria and Romania are now disappointed.
