A Romanian border police oficer inspects a train car coming from Moldova at the Ungheni train border with Moldova on Jan. 18. Romanian border police are tightening controls at the border with Moldova in order to fulfill requirements to enter the border-free Schengen zone in March 2011, but France and Germany have publicly opposed such a move. Bucharest insists that formerly Schengen enlargements were made only on the basis of technical criteria like the implementation of a secure border control system and warns against an "unfair change of the rules".
