Prime Minister Boyko Borisov praised the successful assistance of the Bulgarian military in ensuring the protection of the country’s borders against migration pressure, the government press office announced on Thursday.

“I am thankful for the help rendered by all members of the military who have taken part in joint actions with Interior Ministry forces,” Borisov told a conference in Sofia on the results of the recent NATO summit in Warsaw in Sofia.

At the conference, Borisov and Bulgarian top military commanders also discussed the measures being taken by the government and security agencies in the wake of last week’s thwarted coup attempt in Turkey, according to a statement from the government press office.

The prime minister said that situation was calm on Bulgaria’s border with Turkey at present.

Yet, the dynamics and magnitude of the events in the world over the past weeks and the multitude of challenges Bulgaria is facing require quick response from all parts of Bulgarian society – security services, the government and the citizens, Borisov added.

Bulgaria deployed an additional 230 troops to reinforce border police patrolling the border with Turkey on Saturday to counter a potential increase in migration pressure in the wake of the failed coup attempt in Turkey.
