Bulgaria's Interior Minister Rumyana Bachvarova has dismissed suggestions in a Bild article, which quoted a secret German intelligence report as saying there were weaknesses in the country's effort to crack down on people smuggling.

"We believe this information is to a large extent untrustworthy," the Bulgarian National Radio's Brussels correspondent quotes Bachvarova as saying as she is on a visit there.

The minister, however, has not ruled out "there could be illegal crossings", but downplayed suggestions of a large smuggling corridor being organized after the EU-Turkey deal entered into force, as the report allegedly reads.
