Minister of the Interior Kalin Stoyanov believes that by the end of 2023 Bulgaria will be able to enter Schengen. He said this in response to a BNR question during the Justice and Home Affairs Council in Luxembourg. Stoyanov has planned meetings with most of his counterparts from other EU member states, the director of FRONTEX and Europol, and has already met with EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson. 

"For the moment I simply conveyed our message. I suppose in time we will be able to convince them that we should be admitted to Schengen," he told BNR correspondent in Brussels Angelina Piskova.
