Bulgaria, Greece and Romania signed an agreement for cooperation in migration and international protection, Bulgaria's interior ministry said.
Speaking at a meeting between the heads of agencies, offices and services for refugees, asylum and immigration of the three countries on Tuesday, Bulgaria's interior minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said Bulgaria is making a consistent effort for closer interaction with its neighbours in the field of law enforcement and cross-border police cooperation, the ministry said in a statement published on its website.
In Tsvetanov's words, good practical results have been achieved in these fields, contact centres of regional cooperation being a case in point.
The issues related to migration feature high on the political agenda of the European Union, Tsvetanov also said, adding that as external borders of the EU the three countries have a serious commitment to the security of the union.
In February, Bulgaria adopted a National Strategy on Migration, Asylum and Integration 2011-2020, which outlines the country's long-term policy in this area.
