Foreign Minister says Bulgaria will not allow Greek farmers to ruin bilateral relations

Bulgaria has built up its relations with Greece over 25 years and will not allow 100 to 200 Greek farmers to ruin the work done, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov said on February 24, as Greek blockades and Bulgarian counter-blockades of the countries’ mutual borders resumed.

Bulgarian lorry drivers said on February 24 that if the Greek farmers’ blockade of the Bulgarian-Greek border is not lifted by February 29, they would impose a counter-blockade to stop Greek agricultural products crossing the border.

Mitov said that Bulgaria had taken, and would continue to take, action at bilateral and multilateral level to achieve a lasting solution to the blockades at the Bulgarian-Greek border.
