I relation to the situation at the Bulgarian-Greek border in the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications was held a meeting between the leadership of the institution and the Ambassador of Greece Dimosthenis Stoidis.
During the talks the Bulgarian side expressed the position of strong anxiety because of the difficulties facing Bulgarian hauliers crossing the Bulgarian-Greek border. The Bulgarian side pointed out the existence of serious obstacles for hauliers at the Kulata – Promahon border crossing-point where the Greek protesting farmers do not abide by the previously announced protesting time, unlike the protesters at the Ilinden – Eksohi border crossing point.
