The partial state of emergency declared due to high migration pressure in the regions of Burgas, Yambol and Haskovo will be extended. It was announced on September 23 and will continue due to the urgent repairs of the forest roads. 

In Yambol, the Deputy Chief Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Chief Commissioner Stanimir Stanev, pointed out that the roads in the border area have been unmaintained for years. 
The Ministry of the Interior has taken the necessary measures to deal with the problems, with the goal being not to send redundant officers from the National Police and the Gendarmerie, but to use them inside the country, Stanev stressed.
