Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Mesier spoke skeptically about Jean-Claude Juncker's statement to the European Parliament that Bulgaria and Romania should soon be admitted to Schengen.

"Juncker is a romantic, I think when someone has visions, they have to consult a doctor," Rutte commented, adding that he still has "too many fears about border control and corruption" in Bulgaria and Romania.
