Alert on the Bulgaria-Turkey border: State of emergency due to…

In a state of “partial emergency” due to the increased refugee/immigrant movement pressure on its border with Turkey, Bulgaria declared the border in the Haskovo region. As announced a while ago by the regional governor of the Haskovo region, the decision was taken due to the large pressure that the border receives from refugees and migrants heading from Turkey to Bulgaria.

Bulgaria has erected a 200 km long barbed wire fence on its border with Turkey.

However, the flows have not been stopped and as they increase, there are strong protests from residents of the border about thefts, attacks, arson, etc. misdemeanors attributed to the foreigners who enter illegally.

The issue of migrant flows from Turkey to the borders of the two countries was discussed on Wednesday in Evros by the Ministers of Citizen Protection Mr. Takis Theodorikakos and Ministers of Public Order of Bulgaria Mr. Ivan Demerjiev, underlining the concern for the situation at the borders.
