Traffic at Bulgaria-Greece Border Eases Up, Kulata Remains Closed

Date: 30.01.2009

About 600 trucks were able to cross the Bulgaria-Greek border at the Kulata-Promahon checkpoint Friday morning, the Bulgarian Border Police press center reports.

The border cross point has been closed at 10:30 am and traffic is again at a standstill. About 70 trucks are currently waiting in line.

Before the border's opening Friday morning, the line on the Bulgarian side has been 7 kilometers long.

The Ilinden-Eksohi cross point is open for traffic in both directions. The Greek farmers' protests in the area were officially canceled Thursday.

The Kapitan Petko Voivoda - Ormenion cross point reopened at 11:30 pm Thursday as well. The tractors of the protesting farmers have left the road, but, reportedly, remain in the area.

The crossing points at the Bulgaria-Greece border were closed on January 21, over protests of Greek farmers, who used their tractors to block the roads.
