The next European Council in June may decide Romania’s entry into the Schengen area with its airports, for starters, Romania’s ambassador in Germany Emil Hurezeanu said in an interview with Digi24 TV station.

It’s not just about the cultural gap; it’s about several misunderstandings that have not been settled at the right moment and have reached grotesque shapes,” Hurezeanu commented.
