The Chief of Bulgaria's State Agency for National Security, DANS, Vladimir Pisanchev, has firmly rejected reports of threats for the country's national security over the refugee wave.

Pisanchev spoke Thursday during a hearing before the parliamentary committee for control of special and intelligence agencies.

He admitted the existence of problems caused by the influx of Syrian nationals, fleeing their country's conflict and war and seeking asylum in Bulgaria, and explained them with the fact that Bulgaria never before had to deal with such large refugee wave.

Pisanchev noted that Bulgaria's intelligence has insufficient resources to identify people crossing the borders illegally and to find out who they really are, but nevertheless praised the good organization and partnership between DANS, the Prosecutor's Office and the Interior Ministry.
