Bulgaria complains to Croatian ambassador over border checkpoint closure

Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry said on September 25 that it had summoned the Croatian ambassador in Sofia, Ljerka Alajbeg, to “express serious concern” about Croatia’s closure of its Batrovci-Bayakovo checkpoint at the Serbian frontier.

Alajbeg was told that the inability of Bulgarian lorries to cross the Croatian-Serbian border for several days because of the closure of the checkpoint, and their blocking in long queues on Croatian and Serbian territory was causing consderable damage to Bulgarian transportation companies.
