The army is also ready to join as it can provide 1200 people with transport equipment within 24 hours, and as a whole it can guarantee the participation of three thousand people, Defense Minister and Deputy Security Premier Krasimir Karakachanov announced.

Currently, measures are in place in Greece and Turkey, and the situation is under control, but there is no possibility of a new movement of refugees on Easter and during the election campaign for the European Parliament in an attempt to destabilize Europe, Karakachanov said.

The situation on the border is monitored very carefully from the first signs of possible movements of large groups of illegal migrants, Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said.

The danger of new attempts to cross large groups of illegal migrants has not passed, he said. This calls for the strengthening of border guards.
