Bulgarian deputy PM positive on Schengen accession

The number of countries skeptical about allowing Bulgaria to join the EU’s Schengen visa zone has dropped from seven to two and the government would continue its efforts to address those reservations, Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Kouneva said.

“Bulgaria is 100 per cent prepared for accession to Schengen in terms of air and sea borders,” said Kouneva, who, together with Regional Governor Vulcho Cholakov, inspected the technical preparedness of the port and airport in Bulgaria’s Black Sea city of Bourgas for entry to Schengen.

“I am very impressed with the equipment at the port and the airport, as well as by the professionals who work at border-crossing facilities,” Kouneva said after the May 12 inspection.
