Gilles de KerchoveThe EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove, who is on a visit to Bulgaria, met Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov and Interior Minister Veselin Vuchkov on Friday.

Kerchove and Vuchkov condemned the terrorist attack against the office of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Bulgaria presented full and up-to-date information on the situation of the country’s border with Turkey, as well as all measures for maintaining the high level of security, according to the standards on guarding an external border of the EU. In his conversation with Mitov, Kerchove underlined the importance of aligning Bulgarian legislation in compliance with the provisions of the UN Security Council Resolution 2178/2014/ on the fight against terrorism. Mitov informed Kerchove on the inter-institutional working group tasked with proposing legislation that would criminalise the activity of foreign fighters.

Mitov and Kerchove expressed their common concern on the activities of Islamic State (IS) and converged on the opinion that the EU should make coordinated and unified efforts in combating the terrorist threat arising from IS. The solution should be sought in close cooperation with all countries of the Middle East and North Africa. The two discussed the practical measures taken by the Bulgarian government for preventing the transition of foreign terrorist fighters through the country’s territory.
