Orban: Europe must help Bulgaria with border control
Bulgaria's successfully protecting its borders is a shared interest "of us all", Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Wednesday, after visiting the Bulgaria-Turkey border region with Bulgarian counterpart Boiko Borisov.
Europe's future will not be determined in Brussels but at the borders, Orban said.
Europe "cares little" for Bulgaria, Orban said, and insisted that the community should help that country. "If we can give 3 billion euros to the Turks, who are not an EU member, it is impossible that we could not grant 160 million euros to EU peer Bulgaria," he said.
