The struggle for the border is a struggle for statehood, Bulgaria's Prime Minister Kiril Petkov told Deputy Agriculture Minister Ivan Hristanov. The two discussed the security of the border with the Republic of Turkey when importing agricultural products in Bulgaria. Petkov stressed that the border with Turkey is external not only to Bulgaria but also to the EU, the government's press service reported.

Deputy Minister Hristanov and Turkish Ambassador in Sofia, H.E. Aylin Sekizkök, will visit the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint on May 23. 

There is already a laboratory operating there where imported fruits and vegetables are tested for pesticides. With this, for the first time in 10 years, the state has regained control of the border, Hristanov said.
