The Bulgarian government has made a correction to its Schengen Accession Action Plan.
The plan has been updated in order to meet the recent expert recommendations on covering the technical criteria for a Schengen entry.
According to the updated plan, the building of light-construction halls for secondary control on the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint with Turkey will be a joint responsibility of Bulgaria's Customs Agency and the Interior Ministry. Previously, only the Customs Agency had to be involved in the construction.
The Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint, near the southeastern Bulgarian town of Svilengrad, is s an important point of entrance to the European Union.
On Friday, experts from the Brussels working group on Bulgaria and Romania's Schengen accession concluded that Romania and Bulgaria - but especially Bulgaria - have not met yet the technical requirements to join the border free Schengen Area. Bulgaria's main issue is stated to be its border with Turkey.
