Tunnel of Bulgaria, Greece friendship opened

Date: 12.12.2005

The Presidents of Bulgaria and Greece Georgi Parvanov and Carolos Papoulias inaugurated Friday the new Illinden-Eksohi border checkpoint.

"What we are doing today is a sign that European relations can be enhanced in this difficult and often troubled region, President Parvanov said during the ceremony.

He pointed out the new border checkpoint was being put into operation to facilitate business, trade, tourism, joint ventures and provision of new jobs as well as cultural contacts between the two neighbouring nations.

The future of our countries and nations looks positively optimistic; we shall continue on the new path of the European family too, stated Greek President Carolos Papoulias.

The decision for the construction of a new checkpoint and a tunnel there was adopted ten years ago, but the project lingered for the migrating bears in the area.
