Bulgaria Is SuccessfullyAccording to British Prime Minister David Cameron, Bulgaria should serve as an example of the successful guarding of the EU’s external borders.

Cameron said this during the second day of his visit to Bulgaria, which started on Thursday with a meeting of his Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borisov and Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev in Sofia.

On Friday, the two prime ministers traveled by helicopter to the Lesovo border checkpoint in order to inspect the fence constructed in order to prevent the illegal crossing of migrants.

The effective control of the external borders of the EU and the search for a long-term solution to the conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa continued to be among the main topics of discussion during their meeting on Friday.

During the inspection, they once again highlighted the need for solidarity and united action of all member states in halting the refugee wave and overcoming the crisis in Europe.

Borisov and Cameron commented that this could be achieved through solving the problems at their origin, supporting the efforts of Turkey on controlling the refugee flows and through effective application of readmission agreements concluded with key third countries.

Later they visited the regional directorate of border police in the town of Elhovo where Bulgaria’s Deputy Interior Minister Filip Gunev presented to the British delegation the organisation on control of the border, the video surveillance system and other measures taken for halting, checking and registering of illegal migrants.
