Bulgaria’s efforts in fighting smuggling and corruption were on the agenda of a meeting of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov with senior officials of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the government in Sofia said on Wednesday.

During the meeting with IACP First Vice-President Don De Lucca and Director of Global Affairs Paul Santiago Borisov introduced them to the work of Bulgarian law enforcement agencies, focusing on coordination and results achieved, the government press service said in a statement.

Borisov also highlighted the importance of cooperation among partner services in the fight against organized crime on an international scale and noted that the measures taken by Bulgaria to protect the EU’s external border amidst the ongoing migration crisis indicate the country’s readiness to deliver on its commitments as a EU Member State. 

The two IACP officials are in Sofia as part of a working visit on the occasion of the international conference of the Southeast Europe Police Chiefs Association.
