Budapest (MTI) – In order to stop the wave of migrants, it has been proposed that Bulgaria should be included in the Schengen Area, the prime minister’s domestic security advisor said on Tuesday.
Gyorgy Bakondi told public news channel M1 that one of the main problems is that Schengen-member Greece allows migrants to pass through.
As a result, it has also been proposed that non EU-member Macedonia should be granted significant support to stop the “unchecked and uncontrolled” mass influx.
EU-member Bulgaria is not a Schengen Area member. A 30 km razorwire fence is being built on Balkan country’s border with Turkey in order to stop the illegal entry of migrants even though the EU’s poorest state is not on the Balkan route used by migrants.
