Politics » BULGARIA IN EU | May 1, 2006, Monday // 00:00

EU Commission spokeswoman for enlargement Krisztina Nagy told EUexpands that the decision on the likely date of Romania and Bulgaria EU accession has not been taken yet.

Nagy was reacting to information published by the Romanian press according to which in the draft EU Commission report, to be released on 16 May, there is the recommendation for Bulgaria to join in 2008, a year later than Romania.

The possible recommendation of one or two countries EU accession delay would be found in the "summary paper" to be published along with the reports about Romania and Bulgaria, EUexpands explains.

It adds that any word, phrase or meaning could still change on 16 May in the morning, during the adoption of the package by the EU Commission.

The final decision on the date of accession of both countries would be determined however only in June during the Brussels EU Summit that would act upon EU Commission's recommendation.
