Bulgaria will be supported by Sweden during EU meetings on refugee policy, said Swedish Minister for Migration and Asylum Policy during a meeting with Deputy Chairman of GERB. The Deputy Chairman of Bulgaria’s formerly ruling center-right opposition GERB party, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, has informed Vice President of the European People’s Party, EPP and Swedish Minister for Migration and Asylum Policy Tobias Billström about the current refugee crisis in Bulgaria during a meeting in Brussels on Tuesday.

“Refugee influx is a serious problem for Sweden as 36000 asylum seekers, mostly from Syria have entered the country since the beginning of the year”, said the Swedish Minister. “Two-thirds of the refugees entering Europe are heading towards Sweden and Germany, therefore the Swedish state fully understands the need for common policy on refugees on an European level in order to deal with the refugee crisis and Sweden is ready to assist to Bulgaria in EU meetings on the matter”, said Tobias Billström during his meeting with Tsvetan Tsvetanov.

A little about me and the blog…


I'm studying archival science (include records management). My studies bring me to Bulgaria for six months.

I have been to Bulgaria on vacation but I don't know the language, Cyrillic alphabet or anybody. So I´ll be encountering many new situations and hopefully gain some insights from them. Some of it may end up on my blog. But even blogging is new to me sooo we´ll see...
