Travelers Asked to Avoid Kulata Bulgaria-Greece Border Point

Date: 07.02.2011

All those traveling to Greece Monday are advised by the Bulgarian border police to use the Ilinden-Exochi check border point between Bulgaria and Greece.

The recommendation stems from information from the Greek border authorities warning of a looming strike of Greek farmers in the vicinity of the Kulata-Promahon cross border point.

Farmers from the border Serres region are planning to block the Kulata-Thessaloniki-Athens road.

Also on Monday, the Interior Ministry informed there are temporary interruptions of traffic at Kulata-Promahon since about 130 protesting Greek farmers have blocked the checkpoint between 11 am and 12:30 pm. The border will open for just half hour between 12:30 and 1 pm and will remain closed until further notice.

Unlike previous blockades, the Greek farmers are not using machinery and equipment.

The Interior explain they will provide updates as soon as they receive new information from their Greek colleagues.

Last year, Bulgarian businesses reported a total of BGN 15.3 M in losses from the February 2010 border blockade by Greek farmers.
