Bulgaria has been offered help for the construction of fences along the Bulgarian-Greek border but it has rejected the proposal, stated the Minister of Interior, Rumyana Bachvarova.

“I have talked with my Serbian counterpart and he has assured me that the flow of migrants from Bulgaria is not as heavy as reported a few months ago,” added Bachvarova.

On July 22, the authorities in Belgrade created joint military-police units in order to patrol the Bulgarian and Macedonian borders, and stop illegal immigration.

According to Bachvarova, the first level of action in order to deal with the wave of immigrants is to guarantee the security of the external borders via checks and defence.
