"We are expecting increased migratory pressure at the Bulgaria-Turkey border", said Bulgaria’s caretaker Premier Stefan Yanev during an inspection of the state border near the town of Malko Tarnovo. In his words, the situation at the border appears quiet now. "The competent authorities have already took measures to address an increased flow of Afghan refugees and we are ready to deploy other units of this country’s armed forces to the border, if necessary", clarified Premier Yanev.

 Sections of the border fence which are in poor condition will be repaired within one month or so. There is no need to build new migrant accommodation centers, Premier Yanev assured. He voiced hopes that the political parties represented at the National Assembly would do what is necessary to form a regular cabinet.
