Prior to the meeting at the highest level in the National Palace of Culture, there were 9 member states. None of those present on the forum hope that the rules for joint parliamentary oversight of Europol's work can be accepted at all.

However, Tsvetanov did not refuse to negotiate – land by country, even until the evening before the meeting when the participants had already landed and were on their way to their hotels for the forum the next day. And quite unexpectedly, the opening of the march on March 19 in the audience that the consensus was reached. Even the chairman of the LIBE committee of the European Parliament (civil liberties, justice and home affairs), the Englishman Claude Moraes, was impressed.
