Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva: BSP is trying to instill fear in people with false information that Bulgaria has joined the UN migration pact9 November 2018 | 16:09 | FOCUS News Agency
"No decision has been made whether Bulgaria should join it or not. The debate on this pact began in 2016 and has been held since by experts. The Bulgarian position on migration is clear and it has been repeated many times – stopping illegal migration, protecting the external borders and returning illegal migrants right away. Common fight against trafficking, as well. Bulgaria has no other position and cannot have any, neither in this pact nor in any other document,” Minister Zaharieva said and pointed out that Bulgaria could not make a decision to join or not to join the pact without a debate in parliament.
