Joint Greek & Bulgarian Bansko Ski Resort Police Patrols

Greek police officers are to carry out joint patrols with their Bulgarian counterparts in the Bulgarian ski resort of Bansko.  This desicion occurred Monday, under a bilateral cooperation agreement signed by the two neighbouring countries.
Greek Police Lt.-Gen. Yiannis Rahovitsas traveled to the Bulgarian resort on Monday to meet his Bulgarian counterpart and inaugurate the project, which is taking place for the first time.
Two Greek police officers have been in Bansko since January 16th and their presence aims to assist Greek tourists in Bansko.
European Union rules allow joint patrols by the police forces of two neighbouring EU member-states for a radius of ten kilometres on either side of the border line, but the agreement between Greece and Bulgaria extends the jurisdiction of joint action further.
