Questions and answers to Cecilia Malmström on Bulgaria/Syrian refugees
Type: Complete press conference
Brussels - EC/Berlaymont
On 21 October 2013, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, presented a Communication containing suggestions on how to reduce gun violence in Europe. It aims to identify actions at EU level, through legislation, operational activities, training and EU funding, to address the threats posed by the illegal use of firearms. The Commission identified four priorities under which several concrete actions are considered: increasing pressure on criminal markets; safeguarding the licit market for civilian firearms; reducing diversion of firearms into criminal hands; and building better intelligence. The actions put forward in the Communication will facilitate both legal trade in the internal market and law enforcement cooperation in identifying and disrupting organised criminal groups.

Yes, we had a mission in Bulgaria just a couple of days ago from DG HOME we will sitting down together with the Bulgarian authorities to identify the needs that Bulgaria needs following this enormous pressure that they have been facing in a very short time. Both financial needs but also some technical staff assistance. So, we are trying to define that with Bulgaria and we hope that we can help.
