EU ministers agree on extending Schengen regime to new members

A meeting of justice and interior ministers of the European Union in Brussels accepted a proposal to extend the Schengen border regime to the community's ten new members, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

Joining the Schengen system will involve a gradual elimination of checks along borders between EU member states starting in December next year, provided that the new members meet all customs and security requirements as defined by the organization. (english.mti.hu)
