Bulgaria -Drivers of small and medium truck carriers block border to Turkey -February 10, 2014

Drivers from small and medium truck carrier companies have blocked the Bulgarian-Turkish border at the Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint. The drivers are protesting against the closing of the border for trucks after a bilateral dispute between Turkey and Bulgaria about quota for transit traffic permits arose. While the Bulgarian Association of International Transport Carriers agreed not to organize a blockage after the prime ministers of both countries agreed to negotiations on 21 February, small and medium enterprises have said they cannot afford the losses of their trucks that have already been waiting at the check point for ten days.
