Boyko Borisov: Closing All External Borders of the EU for Illegal Migrants

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has launched an initiative to close all external borders of the European Union for illegal migrants.

"Today we have taken all necessary measures for the reliable protection of the Bulgarian-Turkish border. We propose a compromise and we will stand up for this at the European Council meeting. We are talking about the need to introduce preventive measures, which include, above all, the closure of all EU external borders for migrants, so that Europe does not look like a yard for crossing," Borisov said.

According to him, anyone wishing to visit the EU should only use official checkpoints where fingerprints and other data are also checked.

These measures, he said, are no different from those acting upon entering the United States, Canada or other countries. If the requirements are not met, people are to be returned to where they came from," Borisov explained. "That is why the first word is said to be prevention - the immediate stopping of the flow and the observance of the rules," Borisov said, adding that Bulgaria "guaranteed 100% the EU's external border".
