Bulgaria and Romania's entry to the Schengen zone is not a political, but rather a technical question, according to the Spanish Ambassador to Bulgaria, Rafael Peydro.

His statement was made Wednesday during a meeting for presenting the priorities of the Hungarian EU Presidency.

Peydro has expressed hope that the two countries would join the Schengen agreement as soon as possible.

Hungary's Ambassador to Bulgaria, Judit Lang, pointed out that the focus will be set on monitoring the implementation of the required criteria for Bulgaria and Romania's Schengen entry.

"We should not speculate about the two countries' entry to the Schengen zone. But during the Hungarian EU Presidency, the goal will be to monitor the implementation of the criteria. The political and technical aspects of this process should not be mixed," Lang said.

In her words, the recession is not over yet and that the Eurozone is facing many problems.

She also noted that a trending topic will also be Serbia's entry to the European Union. Other priorities of the Hungarian EU Presidency will include promotion of innovations, as a focus of the program Europe 20/20, achieving an economic growth, creation of more job positions, strengthening of the contribution of small and medium enterprises, and introducing more effective measures for the integration of Roma.
