BRUSSELS : Romanian Foreign Minister Mircea Geoana said his country had completed its negotiations to join the European Union in 2007 with the closure of the last two chapters outstanding.
"The negotiations for joining the EU are closed," he told reporters. "Romania has finalized tonight the two remaining chapters," he added after the end of talks on the issues of justice and competitiveness.
The end of Romania's accession talks is to be endorsed at an EU summit in Brussels December 16-17.
Geoana expressed hope that the entry deal for Romania and Bulgaria, which completed its own accession talks in June, could be signed in late April or early May.
The two neighbours dragged their feet in implementing reforms after the collapse of communism in 1989 and as a result were left out of the "big bang" expansion in May which saw eight central and eastern European countries plus Cyprus and Malta join the EU, boosting its membership to 25.
