New Border Crossing between Greece and Bulgaria

New Border Crossing between Greece and Bulgaria

Bulgaria and Greece are opening a new crossing point on their border today, thus celebrating the 130th year since the establishing of formal diplomatic relations.

The new Ivaylovgrad-Kyprinos border crossing close to Bulgaria's Kardzhali and Greece's Alexandroupolis will be inaugurated by the Presidents of Bulgaria and Greece, Georgi Parvanov and Karolos Papoulias, at 11:30 am today. After that, the two presidents will have a tete-a-tete meeting in Ivaylovgrad.

Bulgaria's Deputy PM and Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov and Regional Development Minister Rosen Plevneliev will also be present at the ceremony.

The construction of the new border crossing is expected to facilitate the regional connections in the area where the borders of Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey come together.

The opening of the new border crossing was announced at the end of July at the first ever joint sitting of the Cabinets of Bulgaria and Greece. This will be the fifth crossing on the 493-km long Bulgarian-Greek border.
