Bulgarian Prime Minister on Migration Issues After EU Presidency

Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov commented on border defense and migration in Bulgaria, both legal and illegal.

The leader of the parliamentary group of BSP, Kornelia Ninova, criticized the Bulgarian EU presidency for not solving the problems relating to migration. She also asked Borisov whether he’ll use the migrants as a way to add demographic growth to Bulgaria’s dwindling population.

During his speech, Borisov said: “If the topic of migration was so easy and had a categorical solution, the EU wouldn’t have had so much” He also said: “Some time ago, we were unprepared to defend the state, but now we are the most prepared. Subsequently and after the decisions of the parliament, and the given 320 million, we are guarding the outer border of the EU.” The PM said that the wars in Syria, Iraq, and Libya have caught everyone unprepared, which is why the initial migrant waves were overwhelming.

Borisov also defended German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s stance on migration, claiming that she saved Bulgaria from having to house 60,000 migrants by admitting them into Germany. Borisov also asked Ninova if she’s ready to meet business owners that employ migrants from Ukraine, Belorussia, Moldova, Serbia, Macedonia, or Bessarabia Bulgarians and tell them that they must be cast away from the country.
