Bulgaria Considering Anti-Arms Trafficking Centre to Boost EU SecurityBulgaria plans to propose to set up a centre for prevention of illegal arms trafficking through the Western Balkans as part of the European Union’s anti-terrorism effort, Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Kuneva said on Friday.

Following a meeting with EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove in Brussels, Kuneva said Bulgaria is preparing to make the proposal at a meeting of EU justice and home affairs ministers in Riga next week.

Bulgaria is well situated and has the administrative capacity needed to set up such a centre, the government’s press office quoted Kuneva as saying.

Kuneva is in Brussels for meetings with key EU officials on measures to improve coordination between member states in tackling migration issues in the context of increased international threat of terrorism and the need to bolster security within the bloc’s borders.
