Tonight, citizens have gathered to protest on the road Gotse Delchev-Drama. The reason for their dissatisfaction is the closed border checkpoint at Ilinden-Exohi between Bulgaria and Greece. After attempts by regional authorities in the two border regions to find a solution to the problem failed, businesses and citizens have called on the Bulgarian state to intervene urgently, even if it imposed reciprocal restrictions on border crossings with Greece. In addition to heavy transport, all those who plan their summer holidays in this region of Greece are also affected. 

The protesters threaten that if there is no quick reaction and effective negotiations at the diplomatic level between the two EU member states, a blockade of the Kulata border checkpoint will follow.
