The cross border checkpoints on the Bulgarian-Turkish border are reported to be functioning normally after Turkish carriers staged a blockade several days ago.

Late Sunday evening, the line of tractor trailers on the Bulgarian side of the border at Kapitan AndreevoKapukule was about 15 kilometers long but has almost dissipated Sunday morning. Lines have been also reduced at the Lessovo border crossing.

The use of the border crossings "Zlatograd" and "Ivaylovgrad" is very intense and they are working at full capacity, said Bulgarian Customs authorities.

Turkey closed their side of the border on Tuesday as their Customs agents insisted for Bulgaria to lift checks on Turkish trucks crossing from Bulgaria into Turkey.
