The European council will restart discussions on Enlargement of the EU before the EU-Western Balkans summit in May 2020 during the Croatian presidency of the Council of the EU. This offer made by the Bulgarian PM Boyko Borissov was concerted and supported by the head of the European council Donald Tusk and the German chancellor Angela Merkel.
Bulgaria and 5 other countries – Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Hungary – sent a joint letter to the European Parliament and the European Commission regarding the Mobility Package 1. “It has been changed so many times that eventually it lost his original meaning”, continued Borissov. The letter mentions that there is a need of thorough discussion having in mind all the national specifications of the member countries of the EU. “No measures taken should lead to separation. Instead they should supervise the competition, be realistic, proportional and non-discriminative”, states the letter.
All the six prime ministers summon the EP and the EC to carefully analyse their offers regarding the Mobility Package 1 and assess the effect that the measures would have before they continue debating the problem.
