Comments on the European Commission's monitoring report on Bulgaria's and Romania's have found their place in all German media Thursday.

The official report which, under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism, CVM, focuses on the judicial reform, the fight against corruption and the fight against organized crime, was released Wednesday.

Under the headline "EC Warns Bulgaria and Romania," Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung notes that the situation in Bulgaria is worse than in Romania and the EC request are far from being fulfilled.

The German articles point out the two reports have been very much anticipated in Brussels since the countries that have objected Bulgaria's and Romania's Schengen entry such as Germany, France and the Netherlands have bound their decision on the report's conclusions.

German media join around the opinion the poor assessment of Bulgaria will delay even further the joining of Schengen and will dim hopes of no-border control travel of Bulgarians.
