Bulgaria Demands Access to Schengen Database amid Migrant Crisis

The quota system for migrant relocation is currently the only possible and right option for Europe, Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Kuneva has said.
In a statement to the media also published on her own blog, she has urged on leaders to adopt the plan proposed by the EU Commission and backed by all but for interior ministers at a Tuesday meeting in Luxembourg.
The Deputy PM has also demanded that Bulgaria receive full access to the Schengen database as an external border of the EU, adding that stability in the country, amid the complex international developments, is of crucial importance.
Kuneva's comments come ahead of the Wednesday EU Summit where leaders are to affirm the countries' commitment to the quota proposal. Bulgaria has voiced support for the scheme, while four countries – Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Romania, – have said they will reject.
She has described the migrant problem as one “whose solution requires the participation of everyone,” reminding that Bulgaria, a “frontline state” in her words, could tomorrow be facing the situation of Hungary, Italy or Greece and it should then expect the same solidarity.
