Bulgaria supports proposals to adjust Schengen rules

Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said on Wednesday (May 4th) that Sofia supports French and Italian proposals to reform Schengen rules, even though the country is still a candidate to join the border-free zone. “Bulgaria will back the proposals for changes which provide for temporary freeze of a country’s membership in the event of emergency circumstances,” Tsvetanov told EU ambassadors in Sofia at an event on human trafficking sponsored by Norway.

The European Commission has announced proposals — including modification of the Schengen agreement — to deal with the influx of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa after the wave of violence there.
