During the telephone call on Friday, it was clarified that “there is no direct threat to Bulgaria at this time,” said the government in Sofia.

According to reports of refugee movements towards the European Union, the EU country Bulgaria strengthened the protection of its border with Turkey through gendarmes. In addition, 1,000 soldiers could be sent to the Turkish border, it said.

Borissow was certain that Bulgaria and Turkey would continue to work together to “overcome the crisis in Syria and end the migration flow”, the government said in Sofia. In this situation, neither Turkey nor any other country should be left alone to deal with it, said Borisov. “Support should be provided.”

Borissow and Erdogan had arranged a meeting for Monday.
