“I very much regret the Austrian government’s decision to block Romania’s and Bulgaria’s accession to the Schengen area,” wrote former Green Party leader Van der Bellen on Twitter on Friday.

Although Austria is in a difficult situation because of the many arriving refugees and migrants, the veto would not change anything, said Van der Bellen during a visit to Ljubljana in Slovenia. “All I can see is that we’ve drawn a lot of resentment at the European level,” he said.
