PM Borisov: Bulgaria, Turkey Ready to Ink Border Protection Agreement

Yesterday's meeting of Bulgaria's PM Boyko Borisov with Turkey's President Recep Erdogan in Ankara lasted over two hours.
Borisov also received a special birthday present from his host - a handmade richly inlaid shotgun.
After the meeting, the two were flown to Istanbul, where they had an opulent dinner. Upon landing, Borisov gave a brief news conference, outlining the highlights of his talk with Erdogan.
„Over the past few months there has been some tension in the bilateral relations between Bulgaria and Turkey. For now, however, the tension has subsided and the dialogue between our two countries is back to normal.
This dialogue is particularly important for Bulgaria, because our largest neighbor, Turkey, is protecting our border from migrant pressure coming from the Middle East.
Currently, we do not have any pressure from illegal migrants on our border, thanks to our good neighbor, Turkey, and we would like to vest this excellent cooperation in an official agreement, with or without the participation of the EU.
Bulgaria and Turkey are at the gateway to Europe, so our good bilateral relations guarantee the stability and the security in the whole EU.
