The Bulgarian Army has deployed enough personnel and equipment to assist police forces in protecting the country’s border with Turkey against a potential increase in migration pressure, Defense Minister Nikolay Nenchev has said.

Nenchev, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and Interior Ministry Chief Secretary Georgi Kostov visited the area of Malko Tarnovo and Rezovo on Saturday to see for themselves how army and police force coordinate their actions in protecting the external border of the EU.

The Army is ready to strengthen surveillance and patrols along the border to help police in case migration pressure increased, Nenchev said.

“According to the information I have, the situation is relatively calm; I hope it will stay that way in the future,” Nenchev told reporters at the border.

Bulgaria deployed an additional 230 troops to reinforce border police force patrolling along the border with Turkey last week as pressure on the border could be expected to increase following the failed coup attempt in Turkey on 15 July.
