Even though it is operating some of the buildings along the border, the private company Eurolab will not be returning to exercise plant health control as along as Yavor Gechev is Minister of Agriculture. This promise was made by Minister Gechev himself, in an interview with Nova TV. He stressed that the removal of Hristo Valchanov from the post of head of the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency has nothing to do with Eurolab.

In an interview with public service TV BNT, Deputy Minister of Agriculture Krum Nedelkov stated that what the caretaker government found at Kapitan Andrfeevo border check point was chaos, whereas in the time when Hristo Daskalov was at the head of the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency, the barrier was being raised for imports of farming produce into Europe without any control, Krum Nedelkov said.
