MEPs Visit Bulgaria to Inspect Frontex Operations at Turkish Border

Members of the European Parliament's civil liberties committee are on a three-day visit to Bulgaria to see first-hand how Frontex operations work at the border with Turkey.
The MEPs are to visit the region of the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint, where Frontex supports national authorities in carrying out border checks and gathering intelligence, the European Parliament said.
During the visit, from February 12 to 14, the committee members will meet, among others, Interior Minister Valentin Radev, representatives of the Border Police, international organisations as well as NGOs.
On February 7 and 8, Frontex's management board met in Sofia, capital of the country that currently holds the rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU.
